Terrific nose. Blueberries, dark blackberry, granite and clay. Really compelling and deep. Herbs, red velvet cake. So nuanced and elegant. Refined, clear and precise. what vivid blueberries. Palate is ripe and rich, delicious granite and concentrated tiny berry red fruits. Refined and so granite driven. Elegant and deep. Needs to open and it will. This is old school and will unfold. Will be back.

This greatly improved overnight and it really needed excess air as all of the Pinheiro wines need. Big smokey blueberries and massive granite on the nose lead way to spice flowers, clay and blackberries. Some hints of desiccated blackberry as well. Palate is round, ripe and creamy. Delicious, complex and concentrated fruit and amazing purity. Finish seems still a bit closed but wow what a wine. Really clean and balanced but still holding back. Such fine tannins. From 9.2 to 9.3.
