Time to drink up. Powerful aromas of dried fruits, medicinal herbs and cellar. Fruit is past its prime though the wine is still easy to enjoy.

In a fascinating spot at the moment. A lot of oak integration manifesting in spicy/herbal notes across the nose and palate. Darker & riper than I expected to find it. Quite tannic, but that grip plays off the complex nature of the wine rather than overwhelming it. Excellent balance.
