This remains a very feminine styled wine (as I recall from a bottle a few years ago). Nose requires some time to unfold, but eventually shows lots of lively crushed granite, cracked black peppercorns, blackberry skins, and a slight cured meat note. Lean and medium-bodied in the mouth, with savory, minerally flavors and crisp acids. It’s light but flavorful, and seems to have plenty of life left.

Feral, dark fruit, purple flowers and a little reduced. Really opened up with some air.

Smokey, gamey meats, beef jerky, black pepper, and black cherry liquor on the nose. Acidity driven on the palate, with back-end tannin and dark cherry fruit. Excellent balance. Drink now or hold a few more years.

Very savory. Nose features cracked peppercorns and smoky, stony minerals, with cassis fruit definitely in the subservient position. Mouthfilling yet only medium bodied. Linear, light, and long, with savory notes dominating. A unique style. Can hold or maybe improve over next several years.
