This is chocolaty and nicely peppery on the nose with lots of dusty black spice. Something a little North African going on, but under that is wonderfully bright black raspberry and boysenberry-tinged fruit that shows a hint of coffee bean. Rich and powerful on entry with cinnamon and toast notes early on that lead to a fine, clear mid-palate with sour black cherry and black berry fruits. This is a bit on the lighter side body-wise but packs great intensity of flavor on to the palate. There’s a faint bitterness here that I find attractive but might be off-putting to some. That bitterness is part of a terrifically long finish though. 88pts

The nose was very expressive and fresh with crisp watermelon, strawberries and whipped cream (but not sweet), followed by raw almond and minerals. On the palate, it had a medium body with great focus, showing flavors of ripe cherry and citrus zest. The finish was simple yet a perfect close to this wine, as citrus notes and mouthwatering acidity left a slight zing on the palate.
