This is aging very gracefully. Red and dark fruits, forest floor, toasty oak and crushed rock. Tannins suggest it still has a good few years ahead of it.

So elegant and effortless on the palate. Wild, underripe raspberry, dirt, funk, acidity hums throughout but never sharp or angular. Extraordinarily impressive.

Wild mushroom nose. Feral, low acidity for pinot noir, cajun brisket finish and lingering spice. Very impressive.
