Surprisingly approachable. An elegant vintage with excellent concentration and relatively supple tannins. Damp mushrooms, forest floor, dried herbs and cranberry are fairly dominant but there is a faint florality emerging as well.

Super young but alive and approachable. Brighter red fruit than I was expecting. Cut thru a steak dish beautifully @golaosteria in Ithaca

Lovely vivid aromatics of traditional liquorice, sweet tobacco, tar, violets, faint menthol with dark cherry and black raspberry fruit. To taste the wine is entirely approachable with resolves tannins and high but intergrated acidity.

Tart cherries and tomatoes. Brett. Purple and red flowers —- much more open and floral than 2013 vintage. Wild herbs and tar on the palate. High acid, medium body.

Leans lighter, more expressive / lucid red cherry, simple but totally harmonious
