Still kinda closed, but we are poppin and pouring and this bottle has seen a lotta transit. Palate is nonetheless seductively full fruit, darker and more ripe than expected.

Pop and pour. I've found significant variation in perceived brett on Cameron wines from vintage to vintage and, frankly, from cuvee to cuvee. I adore these wines, and this bottle is no exception. A touch of reduction and some.bretty funk, but the brett blew off with 30 min of air. On the nose: pure sweet strawberry and raspberry, spice, soft vanilla, pepper...To be honest, this bottle showed better than the 18 Reserve and closer to the 18 Clos Electrique in spirit, at least aromatically. On the palate: fantastic density and good acid, loads of wild strawberry, soft leafy notes and soft tannin on the finish. This is downright excellent, and has forced me to revise my views on the 2018 OR vintage (speaking in broad strokes, I've far preferred 15 and 17 vintages to 18, until this bottle and the Hundred Suns Bednarik I had recently).

2018 Reserve. Awesome. Tons of bright fruit. Some complexity. Nothing not to like.

Love love the nose. Palate falls a little short. Day 2, better.
