Varietally correct, but perhaps a bit much on the extraction for my taste. Quite hulking and structural, very ashy and soapy after a sweet, simple nose.

Lovely, floral, tart berries. Medium bodied with nice fruit concentration. Great acidity to balance the fruit and lengthen the finish.

Olga, you minx. Insane amounts of varietal character; francing out. Delicious, salty, watermelon, unripe blackberries, pepper, dirt, mushroomy foresty loamy situation. Serious shit for $20.
