This is intensely aromatic with stemmy herb notes, meaty and earthy with medicinal herb accents that recall Angostura bitters over cherries jubilee! Perhaps a touch little soft on entry before the bright cranberry and wildberry fruit filled the mouth. This has lovely tension in the mouth and compelling inner mouth perfumes of crushed flowers and garrigue accenting the fruit. The tannins have mostly melted away here making this just a bit soft an easy in the mouth but this finishes with excellent length and a great bitter orange peel note on the finale. 91pts
