Very tight. A bit of heat on the nose blew off to provide some nice fruit. The body was still a bit disjoint. Finish was solid. Perhaps a few years of age will help with integration. Though oak tanniuns were present, the lack of fruit tannins is a bit concerning. It's old world style worked much better with food. All in all all a good but not great wine.
Is this for California? Not your typical fruit bomb point chaser. There's plenty of fruit, but held in check by nice firm tannins that would let this one cellar for years to come. I fount it well-structured and elegant while quite easy to drink and enjoy without thinking too hard about it.
