Young with lingering tannins but showing nice wild blackberries, herbs and anise. Needs a few years to soften and come together.

Delicious but not peaking as the tannins still hit the tongue with a slight impact.

Nice nose full of bright red and blue fruits with underlying spice/ Tobacco. Still tight from youth but well balanced and persistent.

The 2012 could use a few more years indeed but it has nice promise. Still quite delicious; tannins don't overwhelm, and it's softening nicely.

Stewed fig and dark, round fruit. Delicious now, but I'm guessing will get more complex with a little age.

Very nice, especially for a young CDP. Great acid, earth and fruit, and well balanced - no alcohol bomb here. Needs food and good with some air.
