Lots of dark oak greets the nose along with dusty soil and lightly dried leafy aromas under olive laced black cherry and black currant fruit. Elegant on entry, the well framed fruit has a lovely dark character, broad shouldered and narrow waited with well integrated acidity and dusty tannins lending support. The palate gains lovely brushy, dried herb and tree bark notes adding complexity leading into a rather explosive finish. This is still tight and wound up on itself but the wonderful length and freshness to the fruit on the finish, with it’s gentle sense of innate sweetness bodes very well for the future. Complex both texturally as well as aromatically. 92pts
