Young but wonderful. Black fruit and still some strong tannins. Needs time BV

Bright red. Great lift and length. Only good things to come.

So. Much. Potential. Can't wait to try this again in 10 years. The corners of my palate are singing Christmas carols right now. It's got some red berries and some earthy notes. Not overly structured actually, but could use some time to soften the edges anyway. Definitely a well-made wine with plenty of attitude.

Over extracted and hot. Far too modern to last.

Very classy yet pent up. Drinks pretty good now, but was opened way in advance of tasting. Reminded me of Heitz Martha's Vineyard a bit. Blackberries, medicinal herb, lavender, and fine tannins.
