This shows some faintly herbal notes on the nose and maybe even a touch of something vegetal accenting the light red fruits. Yes, there is something almost weedy here and even a little minty to boot, but at the same time there is a sweetness and freshness to the fruit. A little closed at first, this takes plenty of time to open. Though it never fully opens, it does shows a fine intensity of liquory red fruit, full of bitter cherry and red currant topped with a judicious use of oak. The herbal qualities are still here but they are deep in the fruit along with some pencil lead and a certain meatiness. The texture is youthful yet balanced, with dusty tannins embedded in the soft fruit. The finish is a touch short and is still showing the nice wild cherry note but not with the follow through one might hope for. Still, this is fairly elegant and delicious. 91pts

The wine opens with dust in the nose, then blackfruits, and nuances of coffee and tobacco leaf. Generous ripe fruit, with a warming brightness are laid over solid tannins by mouth. The finish is lengthy with a pleasant dryness.
