First, when opened up a very expressive nose of cassis and blueberries. On the palate a little jammy and one dimensional and missing some structure and minerality. 2 days later it paired very well with a nice piece of grilled flank steak, I would say its a summer barbacue wine which can hold its own against some barossa shiraz. I would recommend to drink it at or below 16 C to keep the fruit.
All the wines tasted were very young but some stood out. This was tight & the nose didn't really open up. After the bottle was open for about 45 minutes the nose started to give way to some black cherry but that's all I could really pick up on. Round, softer tannins than most other young wines. Very approachable for its age but the lack of tannins didn't allow this to have enough backbone to stand up on its own. This would pair well with a nice piece of red neat or even some sliders. We actually had it paired with wagyu beef sliders and it really was nice but by itself its lacking something. Maybe it just needed some time to open up.
