Not as full bodied as the Hirsch. Sour cherry and dark fruits in the core. Delicate and very good. Will add complexity as ages.

Tight at first, good mid palette. Dried herbs, cola, dark fruits. Very young still.

Youthful, lots of whole cluster influence presently. Delicious though with a great future. Structured, fascinating juice.

This blend was balanced but lacked single terroir identity so like drinking fine Cognac rather than Almagnac...enjoyable nonetheless.

Muted cherry nose, interesting mushroom sauce and slightly herbal notes, soft finish.
