90

This vintage is quite young and closed at the moment. After lots of swirling and time in glass it opens somewhat, revealing fresh black cherry, blueberry, licorice and sweet spices. The oak is prominent, and, as in previous years, a little on the soapy side. Things improve significantly on the palate, however, where a lift of refreshing acidity adds tang to the already fresh fruit. The tannins are fine and chalky, and a line of crushed Mediterranean herbs makes its way to the finish. Drink 2022–2035. CHRISTINA PICKARD

"Brilliant purple. Smoke-accented cherry, blackberry and lavender aromas show good clarity and pick up a spicy quality with air. Lush black and blue fruit flavors show good breadth and are complicated by an allspice nuance. Finishes on a youthfully tannic note, showing good energy and spicy cut."
