This was a baby, but already had a good bit of barnyard funk on the nose which subsided slightly after an hour and gave way to layers of bright red fruit framed by moderate acidity. The palate is still in a very primary stage this early, but should put on a little weight and add some complexity over the next decade.

This was quite good, but not really as open and expressive as I expected. Hopefully it was just in a slump, even after more than an hour of decanting. Good acidity and balance, but the aroma seemed reserved and the fruit showed a bit, but didn’t impress.
