Unfortunately disappointing. Lacked structure, definition and energy. A bit too rich and clumsy. Not modern but lots of new world fruit. Hopefully it sheds some baby fat and transforms but unlikely.

Unbelievable. Velvety smooth. Alluring aroma. Drinking well now but will definitely improve over many many years.

St Joseph, still tight. Took time to open, kick off the astringency, and hit the smooth currant fruit.
