Leafy, damson, lower acid and very ripe, good power. Silky and so juicy and very elegant.

More character in store than I'd expected! Gentle but unequivocal structure with a good amount of acid and integrated tannins. Violets, bright cherry compote, passion fruit, dried flowers, a bit of animal undertone and a steak of wet stone made for a colorful and unexpected combination. About fifteen minutes in, it had a Gamay-like character but that evolved, too. Although the wine seemed slightly unfocused, it was most pleasant. It was enjoyed with filet mignon, fried Brussels sprouts, baked potato.

A fun drink. Big acidity. Very bright fruit. A tad rustic in a good way. Great with food. Bought from Fass Selections.

Pop and pour. Bright acidity kept it tight and closed at the beginning. Opened up to red fruit flavors over the course of an hour.
