Spicy blackberry jam and subtle gingerbread notes great the nose. More sweet notes of torrefaction great the nose with a touch of marzipan to the roasting coffee tones then more typical and expected notes of slatey minerals and macerated flowers add depth. On attack this reveals a deep core packed with sweet fruit. The tannins have a slight austerity to them and the great acid adds lift to this classic profile. The fruit is off on the sour cherry end of the spectrum with a touch of ripe green herbs keeping it all fresh. The fine-grained but stern tannins add a bit of nuttiness through the finish but yield to a finale of red fruits with a touch of peach pit. A promising showing and while drinking well now this ideal needs 3-5 years more to enter its peak drinking window 91pts.

Jammy raspberry fruit on the nose is accented with notes of salted capers and backed, dry earth. Light on the palate with clear red cherry fruit that is framed by light herbal elements as well as slow to emerge licorice and tar top notes. A bit simple perhaps and lighter styled with a modest finish though very refined and typical. 88pts

This rachets up the intensity on the nose with an edge of pro-ked like rubber sole and canvas. The nose comes to be dominated by a sweet tea note over the enormously concentrated and deep fruit with a touch of lily floral tones in the background and a gentle suggestion of blond tobacco/cigar wrapper. Still a baby this offers much promise. In the mouth there is solid density and drying tannins that frame the brooding intensity, huge extract to the rich, darkly fruited palate that is full of balanced leather and wild berry fruits. An innate sweetness powers through the finish offer great length yet still very primary notes to the dark, earthy fruit that offers an almost fudgy edge to the roasted notes on the finale. This appears to be closing down as the previous bottles offered a bit more fruit to cloak the impressive structure but still is very impressive. I will try another bottle in 3 or so yeaqrs but this is a great candidate for 20 more years of positive development. 93pts
