Leaning towards old-school this is chewy and just-ripe with lots of baked earth and fruit but mineral and spice, too, not to mention tobacco. Meaty in its texture but also in the sense that it tastes like red meat. Pretty good qpr.
The nose showed ripe cherries with notes of fresh turned soil, minerals and clay. On the palate it was lush with ripe strawberry fruits and hints of stems, which gave way to fine grain tannins that slightly dried the palate and turned the fruit tart. The finish was overshadowed by this wines structure, which should resolve with time.
