Needs time but already pretty damn wise. It’s the first year grad student already in tweed with a pipe. Sexy and old and young all at once. Oh and also you two are picking blackberries illegally on campus at midnight.

Aromas of smoked meat and flowers precede a red and blue berry salad. A sip is dense but not thick, somehow simultaneously wiry and generous with a mineral vein that goes on for miles.

2009 vintage. Great fruit on the nose - mulberry, cranberry, stewed cherries. Very youthful, bar a tad of tan leather. Cinnamon and smoke, white pepper. On the palate, dry but with a slight sweet after taste from the primary fruit. Medium plus acidity. Medium plus body and finish. Medium tannin - integrated. Lovely wine with food but don't open for another 5+ years.

Good expressive nose, very fresh despite a low acidity that seems high. Very pleasant

Fresh and vibrant, sappy extract, but not sweet at all. Many years ahead of this baby

Lacked the finesse and excitement I found in the 2008. Very floral with an attractive nose. #coterotie #cluselroch
