Eric Godin

This is the 2013 riserva.
I'm just going to park my nose on here for a while. I have bright fruits of wild strawberry and cherry but then another dried character as well with a little smoke and spice. A bit of alcohol in my way(14.5)
Palate brings both bright and dark. An explosion of that same bright cherry but an unexpected cocoa. There is a chalkiness that makes it just feel like Coco powder..tannins are short, not as refined as I expected, but I like them, would give a greater utility with meaty pairings. Light yet heavy, earthy and fruity. This wine has everything. Good balance.
