No denying a richness or regional origin here thick gravelly earthen aromas with meaty gamey complexity and the haze of ripe blackberries and their brambly bush origin. Though thick in the palate the wine maintains a medium-bodied feel and tapers out to a light bright red fruited spicy close.

Structured but Gaudi over Seidler. There's a raw quality here an appealing rustic feel that reminds me of wines of ages past. I want more.
