Furry on the nose with notes of mineral, iron, a little sweet wood, astringent lingonberry fruit, juniper, incense and Slovenian oak. A bit soft on the palate though nicely rich and broad in the mouth, this has nice acid with flavors that are tending towards a woodsy, almost autumnal spice quality. The ripe tannins are supportive and there is a nice follow through on the tight finish with red lingonberry fruit and a hint of menthol. 90pts

This has a big nose with lots of jammy red raspberry fruits, a little citron peel, spicy fruitcake notes and a hint of incense. Rich and almost soft on entry with a mineral edge and finely integrated acids that might be quite powerful if not for the balance here. The tannins are ripe and supple and there is lovely depth of succulent fruit right through the big, fruity boysenberry finish that retains a lovely vein of savoriness. 92pts

Just opened Cool and low key at first with notes of limestone and leather being joined by increasing florality and an underlying sweetness of fruit that is a bit animal 2+ Slightly aggressive tannins on entry with a lot of power in the mouth though a touch hot and drying 2+ Darkly fruited with strawberry confiture tones and an edge of bitterness that recalls espresso and licorice, slightly medicinal 2+ Soft and easy on the finish with medium length and a bit of pasticcerria going on 2+ 88pts

Herbal and savory at first with notes of sassafras and cola over fresh meaty/spicy tones with an anise like freshness then develops a definite confiture of dark fruit aspect with bitter earth in the background 2+ Fresh in the mouth yet a bit soft and the tannins are a touch drying 2 On entry there are dark coffee bean tones followed by dark, almost roasted fruit with dried herb and soil nuances adding complexity 2+ Finishes with fresh mineral accents to the dark, drying fruit notes and a finale of almost molasses/baking spice 2+ 88pts

Light and smoky aromatics greet the nose with good, bright fruit tones. Elegant in the mouth with a lithe feel and crisp tannins that support mineral and spice tinged liquory raspberry fruit. Finishes with strong thrust to the fresh cherry and slight herbal tones

A touch of brothiness adds complexity to the jammy wild strawberry fruit and slightly funky earthen notes on the nose. In the mouth this is lovely, round and rich with wonderful tannins and a long, sour cherry laced finish. Almost drinking well already yet this has the depth and balance to age for a long time. 92pts
