Pop-n-pour at cool room temp. Initial aromas of iron gave way to some aromas I associate with age: soy and savory stuff. Quite odd. Then with some more air, raw timber aromas become more prominent. In the mouth, it is quite light weight and medium levels of acidity. Light weight is the first impression I got, and it doesn't expand or gain any weight or complexity. Unremarkable finish. Let the glass and bottle sit out for 1 hour. The aromas have become a bit more harmonious, with some of riper fruit aromas coming out. In the mouth there still isn't much going on. Maybe a tad more flesh, more grapefruit on the finish, but ultimately rather flat.
Pop n pour at cool cellar temp. Quite a bit of funk/reduction upon opening. Left the bottle alone over night and came back to it. Thankfully the funk blew away and revealed pretty red fruits, some florals, some stalks. In the mouth it has a clean, saline acidic quality, with light-middle weight heft. Feels quite pure and precise. This wine even though made from Family Farm and other cast off barrels that didn't make the cut, is of high quality and is open enough to enjoy now.
