Herbs, and earth and seared beef fat show on the nose, along with blackberries. On the palate, blackberries lead, and a complex array of flavors, dancing in an out on the palate, offer accompaniment. Seared beef fat, pencil lead, violets, pepper, and leafy herbs all play a role. This is a marvelously complex and interesting wine, and one that will reward the buyer with a different wine every year or two from the cellar. Drink with lamb. Highly Recommended. 92 points. DBH
