Clear medium ruby, slow tears. Clean, medium- intensity nose of simple red fruit with a slight forest note. Developing. Very subdued red fruit and not much else on the palate. Medium+ body, medium+ alcohol, medium+ acidity, very grippy tannins. Closed up tight at this tasting.
Clear, bright ruby in the glass with watery edge, thin tears. Clean, medium+ intensity nose with red fruit, dried leaves, salinity. Medium bodied in the mouth with flavors of sweet dark cherries and strawberries, cranberry, baking spice. Medium acidity, some high-toned tannins, length is slightly lacking. Good balance overall for the price point. Drink now.
Deep clear ruby. Medium intensity nose of bramble fruit, forest, florals, woodsmoke. In the mouth: blueberries and raspberries, some tart peach, peppery spice, florals, bit of toastiness, some salinity; interesting symphony. Medium acidity, medium- body, medium sweet tannins, medium- length. Solid 90 pts for overall balance and complexity, but perhaps best to drink up soon.
