Mildly pickled and stemmy at first, with earthy compost aromas that fade and are replaced by raspberry and other berry fruit scents. The palate has snap and smacking tannins, with flavors of raspberry, cherry and a staunch buttery dryness. Brambly but with enough good fruit and body to make the cut.
