“A little medicinal, cloves and Bay rum. Dusty spices, a dried-fruit sweetness, and something a little like maraschino liqueur. Tense, dry, anxious; tannins fine but clamped white-knuckle tight to the fruit. Bright orange-citrus acidity piercing the core and a juniper fragrance, but at the moment that’s all tucked back behind the wire. Needs time to come together.”
Jancis Robinson, 16+ points
