On the elegant side for a mountain wine with a lovely smooth texture. Still lots of the tobacco and spices that one would expect. Good for the near term, I think.

Coffee, hints of kalamata olive, black currant, eucalyptus. Restrained power.

Beautiful wine that we loved so much we don't allow to open up! Can't wait to see the flavor profile next time after a good long decant.

Amazing now. High acidity now. But great depth. Will only get better with time as the acidity settles.
