This wine is still a baby and will benefit from some cellar time. It's still great now. Blue fruits. Graphite. A little tight on the finish. Give it some time.

A young young man who is puffing his chest and ready to fight but needs some seasoning. Very monolithic and some heat. Hold.

Distinctly smoky on the nose. The fruit was hiding a bit, but it had a really lovely, full palate presence. Really amazing on the finish. I think it could use a bit more age.
