Herbal and still rather tannic and youthful. Leather, mushroom, tobacco, thyme, rosemary, dusted plum. Some redder tones emerge from the black fruit core - strawberry even. A pleasant rusty patina with some gentle, welcome bitterness on the finish.

Boozy - iron and iodine with melted licorice - fruit is put on the back burner - very subtle but not necessarily nuanced - out of 375ml - will wait a few years to revisit

Mag of Beaucastel '09 with grilled ribeyes over the July 4 holiday was exceptional, though too young.
