This has a very lifted, engaging and savoury nose of blackcurrant, caper, tobacco and gentle mocha and smoky oak....

Very strong tobacco note. Hints of herb on the finish. Very creamy in the middle.

This wine has a pronounced sourness to it, which grew sour-er over time. Underneath that sourness is a concentrated wine full of dark fruit, herbs, slightly medicinal hints, and meaty, smoky, spicy flavours. Reminded me of a lesser northern rhone syrah.

A good wine but the sourness threw it right off balance for me.
