Thoroughly enjoyable. Not much of bouquet on the nose. Earthy & smooth. 1 hr decant. May revisit in few yrs.

This is consistently matter the year that I’ve had, the best single vocab frog that I found. The 2013 Paleo was no exception. Silky smooth with some underlying earthtones and some dark fruit. Tannic features of this wine still present, and should cellar for another decade or more.
