Tight and youthful on the nose with huge notes of candied herbs, sweet herbs, and licorice. This is surprisingly savory with nutty tones and autumnal earthy notes giving this a medicinal and black mineral note. On the palate this is moderately big and rich and packed with ripe tannins, dark savory fruit, and great acidity. The front is definitely leaning towards the dark earthy end of the spectrum but the crisp, hard, black raspberry-toned fruit pops on the back end with the rush of ripe tannins driving the fruit through the long, medicinal finish, which ends with a drying note of black tea. 91pts

I find a lot of ‘95’s to be just entering their drinking windows and this was a perfect example. On the nose I found strawberry, rose and with a little probing, sage with a bit of beefy broth. The palate showed more strawberry with sweet tobacco and mineral, earthiness.
