Excellent bottle of wine with a beautiful nose of dark fruits, spices and root beer. The palate is consistent with the nose and delivers the spicy fruits on a firmly structured and well balanced profile that starts tart and earthy and ends with root beer spiced fruit. Hard to put the glass down.
Occupies that weird no-mans-land where there's absolutely nothing wrong with a wine, but it's lacking that something special that makes it remarkable. Gamy, brambly nose, with some blueberry and cedar. Dense fruit, balanced by lively spice and acidity in the finish. All the pieces are there, but they just don't quite rise to the occasion. A wine's that's exactly the sum of its parts - which is not a bad thing, as the parts are very good - but nothing more.
