Nose is very earthy with thoughts of dried crushed leaves with dried berries, dark stones and broken sticks
Palate sustained the earthiness but joined it with both fresh blackberries and sweet toned plums. Ending with a slight spice. Tannins are fine acid is providing lift

Aromas were tertiary dominated with tobacco, muddy earth, baked and stewed red and black berries. The palate followed with dried figs, prunes & and crumbly earth, tannins were subtle and acidity still backing it up. Drink up in the next 3-5.
