This really smells great, high-toned and filled with stemmy, spicy aromas that accentuate the very well defined wild berry fruit. With air, this just gets better, offering up piercing violet notes, herbal accents of tarragon, spearmint and bay leaf all edged with tarry, smoky aromas. In the mouth, this is very well balanced with soft if chewy tannins and lovely depth to the sweet and sappy red fruit. There are layers of savory flavors on the palate and a long, gravelly element to the finish, which ends on a note of black plum skin and black raspberry fruit. The finish is moderately long with lovely floral lift on the finale. This is a little tense and nervous today but a few years in the cellar should really let this shine. 92pts
