Sour blackberries, black cherries, herbs, black pepper, seared meat, iron and vanilla. Racing acidity. Still young and vibrant but I don't see any reason to hold off any longer. This is fantastic right now.

In a funky place. Not as good as I remember, or it just needs more time to come around even funkier.

Quite sauvage with notes of green olive, dried black olive, soy and herbs supporting the plum and cassis fruit. Great texture with supple tannins. The flavors are earthy and bright with blackberry and cassis fruit. Lovely length on the spiced earthy mineral finish.
