May 2, 2014 - Nose: This is wound a little tight right now (even with it having been open for a couple of hours), but there is real class with rose petals, violets, tar, red cherries, roasted herbs, and fresh picked strawberries. There is excellent depth and style to this already with a savory quality to boot.
Taste: Medium/full bodied with high acidity and chewy tannins. It's clearly young on the palate with rose petals, violets, tar, red cherries, and fresh picked strawberries. There is excellent depth and a more feminine feel beneath the youthful structure.
Overall: This was absolutely gorgeous at this nascent stage. There is a lot to like and this can certainly improve with age as the raw materials are extremely good already.3,459 views
