Crazy on the nose with early notes of horseradish, beetroot, sweet black raspberry fruit and loads of peppery spice along with intense green tea and chamomile aromas. This shows more fruit on the palate though it remains edged in an earthy, slightly spicy and almost vegetal filigree. The tannins are a bit aggressive on the mid-palate with juicy acidity helping the wild blackberry fruit to pop on the otherwise earthy mid-palate. Shows hints of mineral and shiitake on the back end and over onto the moderately long finish. The tannins are a bit forceful on the finish but the fruit sticks around. A divisive wine with funky aromas and a certain rusticity or honesty in the mouth. This is a love or hate wine. 88pts

Lots of vanilla and oak in the nose, but not to excess. Some red fruit hidden underneath. The palate really shines, with lots of herbal and complex fruit notes coming out in the finish.
