Saturday, November 16, 2013 - Very young but surprisingly serious, structured wine. I was underwhelmed when first opened, but the bottle revealed delicious nose and structure 24-48hrs after opening. Very reminiscent of St. Emilion in the nose, but more mineral on the palate. Earth, leather, and funk dominated the fruit. After 24 hours open, the wine was a real pleasure. Tight, sharp, and frankly unpleasurable when I first opened -- this wine needs a lot more time!
