Restrained and slightly herbaceous with integrated oak notes well balanced by the slightly vegetal, cauliflower and floral scented notes that contrast against the ripe red currant, red raspberry fruit. The oak is a touch too prominent on the nose at this point. Rather seamless on entry, deceptively so. On the mid-palate this begins to reveal lively acidity that is intertwined with the ripe, juicy, wild black raspberry fruits. The oak is well integrated and offers lots of accent on the palate with herbal top notes and a touch of eucalyptus appearing on the backend. This finishes a touch short but with nice purity to the flavors. 92pts

Tasting Notes:

Concentrated flavors of black currant, blackberry, dark chocolate and cedar blossom with aeration, show different facets over time. The powerful flavors are matched by a dense palate that stays smooth through the lingering finish.
