2013 sisu - 93 pts from Isaac James Baker
I get some tart black currants and juicy plums on the nose along with leather, clove, cedar and toasted walnuts. Full and structured nicely but suave, too, with moderating acidity and lots of crushed blackberry, tart dark plums, smoky blueberries. Laced with earth, loam, pepper, leather, dusty library, not to mention some charcoal, mushroom and mocha. Big but beautiful and full of nuance, this will be even more beautiful in five years. 55% Syrah, 25% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre.
