Great bottle of wine, drinking fabulously right now. Acidic, high toned, yet evolves/ develops with air... Some complexity and even elegance (sport coat over jeans, not a tux) to go with the wild blackberry. Just such a fun wine.
14.6% abv. Medium reddish purple. Floral noes on the nose. Red and blue fruit profile, excellence balance, depth and mouthfeel. This 80 year old vineyard is one of my favorites and Morgan and team translated this into an exceptional wine.
Splash decant ... This one struck me as still a bit too young. The tannins were pokey and a bit too astringent at first blush, though they softened in the glass as the night wore on. Acid just a little too prominent as well. Everything improved with air, with some black fruit notes shinning through after a bit to balance the tart cranberry, leading me to believe this will be better in a year or so.
