Immediately expressive with a nose full of smoked meats, compost, sweet cedar and iron. It is dense and sweet in the mouth with robust meaty flavours and some sweet florals. It is chewy with some wood tannin astringency. The wine's abundant minerality makes itself known just after swallowing.
Stewed cherries strawberries with a big oomph of sous bois savory undergrowth and a touch of umami. Most drinking well and showing mid weight tannin strength. A delightful surprise on such an unheralded vintage.
Dried red berry and cherry notes on the nose, also hints of red licorice. There is delicious sour cherry here, and it could be because this was tasted from a 375 ml, but to me this is starting to dry out, with a drying finish and assertive acidity.
Colour - red with hint of brown Aroma - raspberry, savoury, feral and mushrooms Palate - initially tannic taut and closed. However, after an hour or so it opened considerably and showed some red fruit, earth and very good mid palate sweetness and persistent length. The way the wine evolved was impressive and showed potential for development.
