So I had an immediate impression of something, but it probably shows my age …
do you get this (on nose AND palate)?
… if you don’t recognise it, this is liquorice ROOT. There’s a definite dark, stalky, sweet and yet savoury character to this wine that underlies the obviously ripe berry fruit, that really reminds me of chewing on these twigs as a child
Update: quite something for the price. Lots of ripe fruit there, with a very slight bubble-gummy element on the nose (reminding me of some Carbonic maceration? maybe they do some whole bunch fermentation??) but finishing with shovel-loads of forest fruit as well as that woody note for complexity.
I do like this, though needs some substantial food to stand up to it. Maybe some red meat of some sort?!
