It's hard to imagine a better, more profound wine for the price. The '14 is very young and raw, and could use some time to soften, but beyond the rough tannins that seem to stick to the palate there's a good deal of complexity with notes of blackberry, dark cherry, leather, herbs, spicy black pepper (emerging on the finish), and, most distinctively, mint (with a not unpleasant medicinal quality to it). This certainly has the red-berry acidity and structure for short-term aging, but it's good to go now with appropriate decanting. Nothing sophisticated, but it's outstanding for what it is.

Fresh, lively, good fruit and depth for the money. Fine value.
