Popped and poured; served at cellar temp (55°F). Drank alongside the 2017 Oakley Road. Both were excellent and yet quite different from one another, really expressing their unique terroir. Very primary right now, the Teldeschi was darker fruited with brambles and black pepper. Somewhat brooding. A touch more weight on the palate than the Oakley Road. Long, delightful finish. This seemed to expand the longer that the bottle was open. This should age very well.
