Editor note: Inviting, slightly floral aroma of ripe predominantly red berries with smoky and tobacco nuances and a hint of sage. Clear, polished and juicy, surprisingly cool, very fresh fruit, animating acidity and youthful, fine tannins, smoky nuances on the palate, somewhat nutty, tones reminiscent of bread spices, a hint of coffee in the background, salty minerality and hints of tar, juniper hints, very good, taut, fresh-juicy and again a little smoky finish with bite. First class.
