Rated one hour after opening as she needs some time to open up to allow her nose to blossom.
N/ She leads with the smell of a wild countryside dotted with sagebrush. Crushed granite. Paprika. Exotic spices like nutmeg. The fruit elements are restrained but red berry and plum skin notes delight.
T/ Medium to medium-full mouthfeel. Black cherry pie without the normal sweetness, which is great. Cranberries, tobacco, and slate.
Given that her tannins are still a bit dry and gripping, I think this probably needs another year or two in bottle to shine even more.
Sicily, you’ve impressed me again.
