Likes this wine:

Thursday, August 15, 2013 - pop and pour. The nose shows plenty of super fresh wild raspberry, cranberry, and red cherry, but is a little reserved beyond that, with more subtle notes of fresh herbs, hot pavement (sounds weird, but fits just fine), slate, dried red flowers, some baking spice, and slightly elevated volatile acidity. As much fruit as there is, there is also a sense of underlying rusticity that I think will be much more dominant as the wine matures. The palate is much less fruity, a bit stemmy and herbal, and really pretty tight right now. There's a lot of acid here, and the fruit on the palate is much more tart than on the nose overall. I think there is plenty of potential here, but I won't open another one for quite some time. good+ right now, lots of potential for improvement. I think this will have been a great value in a decade+.
