D60; G15; 4.5+8+4+8.5+8.5+4*+4*; As always, great color, balance and potential. Subtle aromas not leaping out of the glass, but light cherry and floral; flavors are layered light red fruits - cherry, raspberry; great silky, smooth, long finish that smacks delicious. Not sure if the aroma will emerge with time, but its lightness is the only real diminishing note to this wine. Another great effort and well-priced at $65. Should improve over the next few years. Light decant with improvements over an hour; additional opening up in the glass. Will likely be much better in a year or two with several years of drinking window; may add a point to the score = 93.
The nose is tart and totally awesome! It reminds me of a delicious rhubarb crisp with all of the tart, earthy, and sweet notes you can imagine. I can't wait to dive in! It's delicate on contact showing roses alongside the rhubarb crisp suggested on the nose. Spice mixes with rhubarb and strawberry flavors, and the tannins and acidity work gently and set in slowly. the structure is light and delicate which works well to make this wine very approachable right away. 90+
