Brief notes from impromptu wine night. Bright red fruits, cranberry, rhubarb some tart cherry. Nice streak of acidity. The French oak helps to provide a nice creamy mouthfeel. Seamless tannins. This will hold but not sure it will improve much. Nice bottle.
Mountains to Metro (Heritage Ballroom in the Governor Hotel): Perhaps the top wine of the event. This offers very spicy aromas, almost medicinal in nature. There's definitely an herbal character that's very nice. The palate is tart, with pleasing red fruits and impeccable balance. This balance carries into the finish with grace, with impressive tart fruits but on a very soft textural feel. I need to revisit this wine.
