Rather subtle yet complex on the nose with layers of herbs, medicinal spices flecked with dollops of oak spice and vanilla all over a base of firm fresh black currant fruit. The fine balance here makes this feel a bit smaller and more open that it proves to be. There's plenty to like here with layers of currant and cherry fruit topped with savory herb notes, a sprinkle of mint and some coffee candy notes that lead to the firm, long, and fairly obviously tannic finish. The tannins prove to be less long-lived than the minty, wild cherry and currant fruit of the finale. This is long, layered and powerful. Let it rest for another year or two and then enjoy it over the following ten. 92pts

The wine is a deep ruby color in the glass, as you would expect from such a blend. The nose presents some lovely black cherry and plum, along with some cinnamon and floral notes. There is also a sweetness in the nose, almost candy-like, which is offset by the aroma of licorice and just a hint of cedar. The taste is a true delight, with a lovely balance of ripe berry and plum at the outset, giving way to fresh herbs and a certain earthy quality. The flavors are very sophisticated in the way they play off each other and bring real balance to the overall taste of the wine. The tannins are still a bit tight for this younger wine, but they work well for a long, smooth finish.
