Perfectly stored bottle. No brett nor off aromas. Pure as river water. Violets and red fruit. Smoky beef jerky flavors with elegant, low alcohol body. Absolutely beautiful.

Solid juice. Big tasting, great wines. One of my least favorite but still great.

Way past it's prime. Still showing some fruit and a little smoke.
