Very interesting combination of the kind of dark fruit you'd expect from an 09, but with tons of electric acidity and freshness. It wasn't necessarily balanced, but it kept me intrigued. Showed the usual Syrah pepper and gunpowder before tightening up after an hour opened.

Overly aged nose for its youth, plastic and meaty nose, muddled palate.
