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.

Very good; not so big and bold, but very harmonious. The fragrant rose notes were there.

Bright and long. Tart and flowery. Decanted for 3 hours and it was uniformly loved at dinner.
