Funky, fungal but heated nose. Tastes of sugar and cola. Bit of red fruit and some heavy medicine on the finish. Read more

Deep, dark fruit, a touch more coffee grinds, cocoa, vanilla, oak spice, and peppercorn than the last wine but also a damp clay and forest floor tone. Also tight and closed with just a bit of a candied black berry fruit tone on the nose. Big and rich with great acidity and incipient herbal top notes offering contrast to the rich, brambly black berry fruit. Powerful and feeling a touch extracted this has the power and depth of your typical fruit bomb but is much better behaved in the mouth. Lots of very intense fruit is paired with lots of oak and while the finish is very long it is also very woody and tannic with a muddied quality that obscures the fruit. Not my style but for those you enjoy this sort of opacity this is well balanced. Give it a year or 2 in the cellar 88pts
