The nose is suffering from a bit of post-bottling reduction so if you're going to try an example soon, I would strongly advise decanting it first. There is by contrast good verve and freshness to the appealingly detailed and mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess a refined mid-palate yet a somewhat rustic finish that is exacerbated by a hint of dryness that I would again attribute to the bottling as the underlying tannins do seem ripe.
