Fruits are gone and the wild like mushrooms, earth, wet bird feathers are showing up. The tannins are supple and freshness still there....quite impressive!

We agree with all the good ratings on here and there's not much more to add. Fat and rich. Trumpesque. On the ripe side.

Dark fruits, damp earth, still-firm tannin, and a fair amount of brett unite in a way that is really fun to drink!

Minerally bone dry...have some food with it as the acid will cut through heavy food. Very unique.

Worried about the high acidity at first, but evened out. Unfortunately it was in a restaurant....I would have wanted to decant and drink over a longer period of time. Dry as a bone, rich in tannins, and at times a bit puckering. I think when decanted or aged for a long time, this will find a more approachable taste.
