Dark and smoky nose. Woodsy (not woody). The fruit is cool, but still rich and primary. Can sense its ripeness, yet it's tight and angular. Beginning to unfold, but still too soon. Acid is here that gives a real tartness to the palate. Good. Needs time.
Cleaner, more austere nose that hints at minerals and red fruit. The wine seems tight at first, a cool, darker fruit that is restrained. I kept waiting for this to pop, but eve with time in the decanter it never really showed up. It was good, but left me wanting more.
