Transitional. The bright red fruit had pulled back a bit, and the earth and minerality are taking hold, particularly on the finish. This has always been acid driven, and should knit back together with a little more time. Lots of sediment.

Delicious pie flavors! But beware, the acidity is extremely intense and tart. If you are used to grenache from spain or the south of france, where it actually shows ripeness, this isn't for you.

Bright acid still, but losing some structure. 2-3 years left.

At a good place, shyly elegant. Sort of get the hype now.
