Showing some brick on the edge. Velvet tannins, savory herbs, and length. Holds up well.

In a great tertiary moment. Drying sous bois & fruit but still fragrant with velvet touch & fully integrated oak.

A nice nose but a bit hollow and shrill on the midpalate. Disappointing.

Fresher and brighter fruit. A hint of young cherry. Lighter in the palate with a sour cherry bite near the end.

Gnarly NSG-like nose. Brooding and rich on the palate. Plummy fruit with hints of age. Excellent.

Ripe, intense and punchy on the nose. On the palate, pure but a bit scorched.
