In a way serious and ambitious, but sadly at the same time already dried out and premature. Acidity is fine as is the quality of tannins, but the dried fruit cake flavours sets it apart from better wines. Better a few years back. Disappointing.

6+ hour decant. Red currant and lingonberry. Subtle clove and leafy notes too. Midpalate lacks depth and overall I'm left wanting more complexity. Still very tannic, think cottonmouth dry. Finish lasts with persistence and creaminess. Structure is there, but this lacks layers and depth.

2010. After an hour in the decanter it really softened. Lots of red fruit, a hint of violet. Firm structure. Revisit in a couple years.

Nice tannins for so young. Good value. If it gains body over the years it could be even better.
