Tight upon opening after a long drive with a snowstorm finish. Softening on glass #2 -- don't we all?

Happy Thursday at home qith me bride. Lovely nose, but tight at the open. Berries, jammy even, flowers, minerals, a bit of pucker.....needs an hour to develop its fullnesd me thinks, but a winner for sure.

Interesting Rhone wine. I get a little band aids on the nose -- Brett? The color is light but the fruit is complex and sharp. Heat and tannins not yet integrated. Not my favorite Chateauneuf but on vacation in front of a fire with snow falling, not much can get me down. ❄️️⛷❄️🍷

Left 3/4 in the bottle, corked for 24hrs and it softened significantly. Bright fruit very present and it went down so easily. More time in the cellar will help here IMO. Rating reflects 2nd night.
