I thought this release was fractionally stewy at first but the more it breathed the more perfumed and delicate it because. It certainly offers good variety correct drinking. Macerated black cherries, roses and assorted foresty flowers, undergrowth, a gentle veneer of creamy oak, and a tangy/spicy finish. Tannin adds an appropriate level of tension to the wine. Drinks well now and should perform well with extra time in bottle.
