Deep, savage, brooding wild black and purple fruit, smoke, pepper, meat, rocks and distilled violets. There’s some carbonic element that’s settled in nicely. Its low SO2 upbringing is evident, VA is elevated but right up to my limit. Quite lifted and pungently aromatic! Found the tannins settled too, acidity is really driving, the northern gore soils are showing their impact. Enjoyed seeing some bottle development here. — 12 days ago
