Incredibly aromatic. Fresh strawberry, candied rose petal, blood orange peel. Sleek tannin with a slightly aspirinic mineral component. Finish is super long.

Notes of wet granite, forrest floor, cassis, and stewed blackberries on the nose. A wild flower honey note presents itself as a precursor to some brett. The fruit is persistent in the mid palate with some tight tannins. Soft but simple, I would probably try to consume over the next 5 years (by 2020).

Young and needs a lot of air to drink now. Will be great in 3-5 years.
