Stinky red fruit. Big acid but well balanced on the finish. Light, stinky and great.

Expressive funky nose. Soft and fruity with nice acidity. No tannin. Gorgeous.

Really not for me. I tried decanting it but I think it just may need way more time to soften. Very harsh. Good fruit there but hard to get past the bite.
