Mature fruit aromas of candied cherry and ripe blueberry are followed by drying minerals and talc powder. There’s an interesting chewy sensation here that is flowed by luscious berry flavors on the close.
This has a supple feel, but the berry and cherry fruit has a quite tart and woody quality. There are interesting herb and dark chocolate notes, but the tannins seem more oak than fruit derived. It’s still good, though perhaps the potential for better is there.
