Very dark red. Super ripe fruit on the nose- blackberry currant and you could smell the heavy barrel toast. Cooked fruit on the core with an interesting baked component. The acid tightened the back end with the heavy tannins.

Orange peel, rhubarb, black cherry and baking spice. Still a little tannin to resolve but drinking well now.

Spiced cherries, rosemary, forest floor. Very rustic. Reminiscent of NSG. Huge acid. Lush tannin.
