Hints of earth and smoke are present on the markedly floral red berry fruit nose that introduces vibrant, intense and punchy medium-bodied flavors that retain a lovely sense of delineation while offering sneaky persistence on the dusty finale. This is really quite good and while it needs a few years of cellaring to unwind and add depth, the underlying material is here.
Superb stemmy perfume and pure fruit. Edgy with brushing tannin and zippy acid. Not so confident as many, and much the better for it!
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2015
