Raspberry dominated red fruits but playing second fiddle to lots of savoury notes with pencil shavings and dried herbs. Measured oak, fresh acidity. Nice wine.
This is quite savoury and complex, with strong initial earthiness on the nose joined by cherry, raspberry, raspberry leaf, olive brine, mushroom, and black pepper, and there are nice berry replays on the palate, with spiciness building through the finish, even if there's a confected cherry-berry note that reduces the overall appeal. It's fresh and lively, with well-integrated elements supported by a solid structure... until it goes over a cliff with time in the open, a distinct woodsy note emerging, the fruit disappearing, and bitterness taking over. Ultimately disappointing and overpriced.
