Black fruits, some red, a beautiful almost rosy perfume, throaty earthiness, oyster shell, spice and nuts, even some liquorice richness. It’s medium bodied, but fleshy and full in the mouth, filling the corners with lovely Hunter flavour, ripe tannin, and pippy boysenberried acidity. The spread of earthy tannin on the finish is particularly impressive. Beautifully done. Sure to become something pretty great with a decade or two in bottle, though it’s no slouch now.
