This is lovely on the nose with wonderful depth and complexity to the mineral, leather, black fruit and briary spice notes that are fresh and bright. Subtle floral and vanilla notes add additional depth and complexity. Smooth on entry with a slightly chewy feel. This comes at you in waves, with an initial burst of currant and strawberry fruit that quickly gains fine detailed notes of earth, a light gentle mossy tone, more briary wood and a slightly gamy top note. Really wonderful, energetic, aromatic finish. The wine seems almost a touch heavy in the mouth but then dances through the finish, though with nicely assertive tannins. Lots to like here, though the wine does have a slightly rustic edge to it, making it a good candidate for pairing with game and rich meats such as a nice thick rib-eye. 91pts
