[2016 vintage] Fresh, open, aromatic nose reminiscent of blackberries and blueberries, with a resiny liquorice undercurrent. There is a sweet fruit character throughout before a chocolate, peppery, slightly bitter finish kicks in. There a rusticity here that works if matched by foods like grilled sausage or a meat ragú. It would also benefit form a couple of years ageing at this point.
