  • Redcurrent, hint of spice. Sour fruit. Good food wine.

  • Nice deep color, with a bit of fading at the edge. Perfumed nose of various red fruits, minerals, flowers, and an earthy/gamey component. On the palate, this was a medium full bodied wine with excellent depth and very good finesse. It was well balanced, and had a very long finish with well integrated tannins, maybe just ready, but I would hold these for about 2 more years.

  • nose: what originally started off as a nose of mostly brett style barnyard tones and some tart cherry has leaned and opened up into a interesting and soft layered nose of red currants, smoke, spice, soft earth tones, and bits of mushrooms

    taste: nice lengthy and silky feel of red currants, spice tones, bits of earth, mushrooms, and even a bit of red licorice

    overall: there is still some decent tannin present, but this has really started to come into its own. As its opened up in the glass its really demonstrated all of its aspects. Nice medium-light weight on the palate with good acidity and good length on the finish

  • Medium ruby, good colour to the rim. On opening, the fine redcurrant and spice nose is submerged by brett, and the medium weight fresh red fruit leads to a very dry mid-palate. After half an hour the brettiness has eased and the nose is really quite fine with floral touches. The wine is still somewhat drying but with food is super. After 5 hours the nose is quite stable - fresh/floral redcurrant and oaky spice. Mouth entry is acidic but supple with clean red fruit and oak spiciness. Medium/full and very classy palate, just a touch of drying oak still showing on the finish. Good length.

  • Medium ruby, good colour to the rim. On opening, the fine redcurrant and spice nose is submerged by animale notes, and the medium weight fresh red fruit leads to a very dry mid-palate. After half an hour the dirtiness has eased and the nose is really quite fine with floral touches. The wine is still somewhat drying on the back end, but with food is super. With more time, the nose stabilises, showing fresh and floral redcurrant and oaky spice. Mouth entry is acidic but supple with clean red fruit and oak spiciness. Medium/full and very classy palate, just a touch of drying oak still showing on the finish. Good length. **
