This is decidedly funky on the nose with a broad array of savory tones. Forest floor, pine nuts, dried mushroom, toasted nuts, leather, game, dried beef and dark berry fruit all come together compellingly. A bit massive and sweet on entry, but rich and wooly with great freshness and depth. This is a bit unruly but is well balanced and fresh, with great red and blue fruits in the mouth. The tannins are so fine they are almost unnoticeable, allowing this succulent core of fruit to take center stage. The finish is a bit on the short side with a fresh wash of red and blue fruit for a finale. This is all about the old-vine fruit and, while a touch atypical, it's very engaging. 91pts

Slightly spicy, candied black raspberry and even a hint of dried apricot greet the nose, which is fresh and clean, with a hint of violet, though it does show some heat. Slick and fresh in the mouth with a floral note early, then some nutty oak tones that lead to a clear, bright, black raspberry core of fruit. A bit uncomplicated but fresh and wonderfully juicy. The fruit grows in the mouth, adding some red cranberry and cherry tones before transitioning into a slightly peppery, tea tone moderate-length finish. 88pts
