Like vanilla-coconut pudding served with toasty oak shavings. It's nice to see the re-emergence of an under-appreciated varietal like Graciano, but this expression hides the grape in way too much wood. There's body and depth, the tannins are quite soft, and there are pleasant aromas and flavours of ripe blackberry and raspberry as well as leather and floral violet, and there's refreshing pomegranate acidity on the palate, but the wood-based elements are too much to overcome. Extensive decanting helps, and it's better by the second day, but the Graciano grape remains unfortunately overwhelmed.
