Surprised at how well this showed. Sometimes age on a wine comes on its own. In this case, I’m impressed because of its ethereal demeanor. Excellent poise and balance. All fruit on the mid palate. Cherries, coffee nibs and soft brown sugar. Pure and precise with tight acidity. I wasn’t an Anakota fan, but I’m very willing to rethink that now. — a month ago

How about the progression of of this wine? Have some bottles of this of younger vintages (think '15 and'16) but have no idea when to open them

@Severn Goodwin, thanks for the thoughts. @Jan A, on this showing, I would hold. This is the best Anakota I’ve tasted. The others have been younger, and didn’t present as well. No rush here. This vintage still had 5 - 7 yrs of runway ahead of it.
