Wild and gamey on the nose, with cassis, coffee bean and green pepper notes. The fruit is expressive and typical, with tight, wiry blackcurrant. Right now, the structure and tannins are a little oppressive, dominating the finish and drying out the mouth.
But this is an exciting wine, with thrilling acids and pure, typical fruit for the variety.
One to enjoy with a huge piece of your favourite grilled protein, or cellar for a year or two and wait for the tannins to mellow a little.
