Cranberry, red current, very floral - violets, lilac. Funky earth at first which turned to bergamot tea notes with some air. A gamay w some character!

Hitting the decanter in a moment...

Nose is cherry juice, granite, voilets and smokey white pepper.
Palate is a little light, cherry/cranberry, but I expect it'll gain concentration throughout the evening.

Nose is funky, fruity, tangy, and, underneath, there's the granite. It's a sniff magnet. Light, floaty texture, tightly-coiled flavors don't really flower until after you've swallowed, at which time the clingy pure cherry essence and intense granite dust decides to cling to the sides of your mouth. And cling and cling. Ripe, but bone dry and possessing nice acidity. Distinctive. Continues to open and evolve as it gets air.

Tasted from Magnum. Eighty plus year old vines planted on granite and sand. Youthful crunchiness in this stony wine. Plenty of acidity. Needs a couple of years to integrate.

Beautiful nose, floral, nutty, very "natural", mineral, saline. Acid, fruit skin, cherries, early season ripe cherries, mineral slab on the finish. Long, structured. Great concentration and explosiveness. Very pure.
