Opened up with supper expressive aromatics of red bramble fruit with a hint of stoniness. Juicy and open. A little grippy on the back. Another couple years and this should be hitting its stride. Always love this wine. Great value. Definitely a producer that should be better know, but is gladly sub rosa.

Super smooth and almost velvety, with understated dark fruit. Short finish, though.
