A bit floral on the nose and while there is obvious oak here it’s well integrated now with some cedar and tea tones adding detail to the smoky red plummy and jammy red currants of the nose. Smooth, bright and well focused with some early herbal nuance folding into a slightly creamy midpalate that shows fine red currant and raspberry fruit gently accented with baking spices and a touch of dusty minerality. This is smooth, supple and well integrated with red plum skin, cocoa and mineral accents on the fairly long finish. It still has some tannins to burn but they are ripe tannins, not bitter, and well balanced by the substance here. No doubt this is at peak but it is well balanced enough to continue to age nicely. Very well done and a solid value. 88pts
