Tones of tar and tart lingonberry carry the nose and palate. There’s an evident sultriness to the savory components that includes underbrush and garrigue, sharply contrasted by the reverberating red fruit character. The firm acidity defines the palate structure while grainy tannins accompany the fruit-filled core into an impressively long, black tea tinged finish. This is very sophisticated and will surely benefit from time in the cellar. Drink now–2026.
