I gave it a 91 as a complement. Most wines above 93 are spoofalated big dick wines. This is delicious in the way that you don't want too much around because it will disappear too quickly. Pure enjoyment! My kind of wine.

Young and chewy at the moment. One hour of air shows violets on the nose with black and bing cherry, granite, sea salt and a pop of grenadine in the mouth.

Perfumed purple flowers, dried herbs, salt and smoke(!) aromas lead into Bing & black cherry, ripe raspberry, red & just ripe black plum, all framed by salty minerals, acidity could be a bit higher, but super-fine tannins make up the space.

This is my second rating on this wine, and I think this one is showing better to more time. Give it a couple more years.
