Sharp at the beginning, but decanting helped to mellow out out. Fruity but not overpowering.

Big bleeding raspberries covered by sandalwood planks soaked in vanilla and clove. Top it off with some teriyaki sauce and shaved licorice. Good alternative for some Châteauneuf.

Pleasantly surprised. Nose of lavender and plum, bouquet of oregano. The palate brings dried herbs, rhubarb, clay, red dirt, lingering tannins. Weirdly long finish.
