A black Kalamata olive tapenade as a first impression, beneath an overlay of camphor and tobacco. How to say this politely? Boot polish, bitumen, cola, granite darkened stylevarietal base notes. Yet blackberry conserve and sour cherry fill the (fruity) treble register. Scents of cut strawsteel cut oats fill any aromatic chord gaps.
Full-bodied. Substantial. Framboise des bois (raspberry) with pipsvinegar - coulis or apothecary? Meat? Closest association noted - rawrare venison. Not to deny the welcomed presence of chocolate torte and mocha flavours. A "cloaked" continuum of tannins that linger and reverberate with the discipline of a vinous pendulum. Finishes intact with a flourish of dusty graphite (input of oak?) and balanced acidity.
