Well coloured; understated nose, lead pencils & leafy tinged, low-key fruit; brett & gamey notes initially to fore as this opened up & filled out, warm & inviting texture; positive finish. Holding up well. 24 hours on, retained integrity.
Interesting development on the nose, bit funky/minerally/wooly/spicy. Quite warm and plummy fruit profile to the cabernet currants. Full taste, extremely smooth and silky, with rounded acids and a nice, firm, salty liquorice finish. Not a hint of oak bitterness. Drink now.
Rubied; framboise, open, forward, some oak, obvious; fresh, vigorous; an attractive lead pencil/ sappy note; finishes firmly with dusty tannins to fore, yet a fleshy texture. Drink soonish, not for the long haul.
