...the wine has a delineated, mid-weight personality as well as plenty of sweet raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of minerality, bouquet garni and earth. It is difficult to know where this wine is going, but the fruit seems to be holding nicely...(RP)
Bright, saturated ruby-red. Initially reduced nose dominated by gunpowder, tar and bitter chocolate; showed fascinating raspberry, spice, earth and maple syrup notes with extended aeration. Started out a bit foursquare and un-giving but grew sweeter and more complex as it opened in the glass, ultimately showing Burgundian notes of wild strawberry, raspberry, boysenberry and minerals. Finishes with substantial, ripe tannins.
Weaves together a mix of herb- and sage-laced cherry and cola flavors, turning firmly tannic, with dashes of oregano and ash. Needs time for the tannins to soften. (JL)
