2017 vintage. Excellent tension between elegance, delicate fruit, and tightly-wound tannic structure. Floral hibiscus and violet aromas with cranberry, tart cherry, pomegranate, red plum, autumn leaves, green tea, and tree bark flavors. Great streak of acidity and tannins are still quite tight. Tasty with a very long finish.

Fantastic. Rustic, subtle fruit, earthy somewhat balanced red. Softer texture is what makes it less balanced. But still great.

Good! Earth, minerality, a bit of smoke but almost Burgundian in character

From DCanter 2019 on 7/31/2021. Clear light ruby. Cherry lollipop scent. Silky, pronounced tannin, long finish. Non-ripe Stone fruits esp red plum. Emily has s right: hibiscus, violet, cranberry, pomegranate. Some pepper on back end. Good balance as medium body.

Kind of think Pinot noir with Attitude - complex nose of smoke, spice, and berries, but refined on the palate, light bodied with good acidity and balance. Lovely and a great value

Ridiculously good for its price range. Strawberries, cherries, and other juicy fruit, with the volcanic character of the terroir coming through at the end. Would drink this everyday.

acidic, zippy, a little lifeless
notes of: underripe raspberries, lemongrass, tart apple
not my favorite
did not “age” well in the fridge
