89 Points

Sunday, October 14, 2012 - Pop and Pour. Inky, opaque, dark violet. A whiff of something mildy unpleasant - is it brett? - and not much else on the nose. A distinct note of pencil lead, some dark fruit, and substantial tannins on the palate. Medium finish. Will let this get some air and try it again tomorrow, but I suspect it's probably going to be better a couple of years from now. **update** An hour later, this wine has opened up considerably, and the unpleasant nose has completely blown off. Updating score from 85 to 89.
