New vintage to try. Dense purple red. Cherry, black currant and mint notes in nose. Cherry, blackberry flavors with moderate seed, skin tannins. Decant at least an hour; tannins soften and fruit depth increases.

Okay. What am I missing? I had another wine from this producer I thought was a knockout, but I heard some buzz on this specifically and I’m at a loss. Polished red fruit, spicy, thin and unremarkable. The acidity really kills this palate. It’s so wonky, divisive and unfocused. If there are layers, subtleties, or nuances, it’s lost underneath this pounding acid. Change my mind.

Awesome bottle with a notch up on aggressiveness. Hardy and dark, but not too heavy - just expressive. Spicy, smokey, and deep. I just want to breathe it in.

Much better after it was open for 1 day, but still not a good wine. Unbalanced and with a sweet aftertaste, this wine has no fixed flavor. Instead, it’s a mishmash of sweet and strong acid, with no depth. The nose is strongly alcoholic. At its high price,
this wine is not worth buying.

So good. Lifted, gracious, and pure, with wonderfully sappy, medicinal raspberry and kirsch character. So fine and energetic and juicy. Absolutely love it but it's wound a little tight at the moment. Give it a year or two.
