Very floral and licorice scented when first poured from the bottle, this gains a low base of plummy fruit, lots of cracked pepper character and some lovely herbal suggestions all wrapped in a vanilla gauze. rather lighter on the palate than expected here, one finds lots of slightly tart red raspberry and cherry fruits supported by gently ripe tannins and solid acidity. There’s attractive tension in the mouth with good clarity to the fruit and fine structural detail though this is a bit on the simple side. Things get a bit more interesting on the backend and through the finish where the herbal accents of the nose become more apparent and contribute some additional complexity and the finish is quite long with very fine tart cherry and strawberry top fruits. Not a wine that’s going to really grab your attention but one you’ll be very happy drinking for the rest of the evening. The term well behaved springs to mind. 90pts
