Med garnet in color. Very subtle but complex on the nose, lightly smokey/ashy, mushroom, black tea, wet rocky minerality, sea spray, hints of blackberry compote & creme. Jammy fruit on the palate with a light acid profile and soft tannins. Slightly creamy and bitter on the finish.

A great value, but in a bit of a slump at the moment. Would recommend letting this rest awhile before opening. Though I’ve had the ‘16 and ‘12 recently, the twelve seemed dull and halfhearted. Something I would expect to mature and resolve itself with another year or two.

Pleasant enough for a young wine. Stewed dark berries, stony minerality, rosemary, dried herbs and a gamey undertone rounded up by hints of vanilla.

Light but very well balanced wine that is easy to appreciate.
