Huge nose. Some brett, funk and gravy to start off with. Good berry fruit underneath but needs 30 minutes for funk to blow off and this become more civilized aromatically. Palate is bright, juicy and complex. Zesty with lovely freshness. Good flavor intensity on light bodied frame yet very juicy with lively tannins. I like it. Long. Sneaky.

Very fruity but not stewy. Some nice spice. Delicious with food.
