Rather complex if unusual and very spicy on the nose with subtle mint and orange peel accents over lots of earthy and frankly dirty aromatics. orange, earth. This has a lovely texture on entry, rich and rugged showing off raspberry fruit framed with tobacco and lots of earthy nuance with spicy red fruit, lifted by volatility, that plumps on the backend and drives through the moderately long acid driven finish that frays and falls apart turning too volatile. With air this implodes, turning into a volatile mess. 74pts for the first sip, 65pts thereafter.
