great color, beutifully bright red. A penetrating nose with gretaer depth than the older wines, good base of spice and leather, a bit sweaty, lots of orange tinged sweet wild berry notes, turns extremely floral soap scented by nights end. Bright acidity, most tannins resolved, minty up front, lacks a bit of weight and deoth, lovely fruit on the finish, a relative disappointment considering the vintage though a fine bottle at peak, perhaps just a touch past.

Dusty and autumnal on the nose then turning stoney with aromas of hot rocks, a bit meaty as well and then showing off layers of savory notes. All ginseng, lea & Perrins, and roasted root veggies layered over a core of seared cherry fruit with a hint of mint and a licorice nuance adding further detail. Remaining powerful and vibrant in the mouth this shrugs off an early edge of dry tannins, filling out on the mid-palate with great depth of earthy, leather, spicy seedy flavors that add detail to the core of dark, slightly jammy wild strawberry fruit. There’s an innate sweetness here that reveals itself on the relatively long, smooth, and dense finish which retains darker black cherry fruit and hints of fennel, minty herbs, and seaweed. Still quite powerful but with flavors that are evolved. 92pts
