Closed on a new house, and this had to be the first bottle. Really strong tertiary flavors and maybe a hint of Brett. But primarily wet overturned soil, crunchy leaves, and forest floor. Palate shows really fleshy and ripe dark toned fruits like black currant, blackberry and a whisper of black raspberry. It’s still got strong acid backbone with fading tannins. Breathtaking rim variation showing a full spectrum of dark ruby at the core fading to almost pink at the meniscus. Was afraid it could be past it’s peak but still showing very well.

Softer ruby color, but still lots of muscle and depth.

Brite with dark fruits and smooth finish. Lingered on the palate.

Still really solid and structured. But drink now. Not much longer on this baby.
