Sushi and vino (Sai Cafe, Chicago, IL): nose: rich and on the sappy side with tones of dark red fruits, red florals, berries, earth and oak tones as well. The oak is interfering a bit right now
taste: medium/full bodied with chewy tannins and medium acidity with rich tones of dark red fruits, berries, earth tones, and some oak on the back end as well
overall: there's still some real baby fat on this right now. Still shows the sappiness that I've been getting from 02s. This could still use some more time to shed the baby fat and hopefully absorb the oak
drank this over two nights- tis a baby. pretty tight nose but after a few hours of air it started to show a little wet dirt,violets,and raspberries. It has a nice deep mouth feel with kicking acidity. Showed some red fruits, raspberries,blueberries,and rhubarb. Some minerals and spicy tones peeking through here and there.
This needs a few more years as it never really got going but I sense this wine has more it wants to tell. Will wait a few more years to hear that story.
