Fascinating wine! Nose of blueberries and something sweet. Palate is insanely tart cherries with an amazing finish of cocoa, blueberry, earth. I think I caught it in between it’s evolution. Will probably be perfect in 6 months.

Cool climate aromatics dialed up to eleven, with lean but plentiful meat and blue fruit on the palate. Weight without heat @ 14.1%. Bottle age has helped this.
