    Tasted non blind.

    Garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Light nos of black berries, a hint of blueberries and a dash of white pepper. Flavors of cranberries,rhubarb and raspberries. Bright acidity, medium to full bodied. Drink or hold.

  • 750ml; Decanted and tasted after one hour. Clear, medium ruby barely turning orangey at the edges. Clean nose, light intensity of primary cherry/cranberry. Palate is dry, medium acidity, medium- tannin, medium alcohol, light body, light intensity flavors of cherry and baking spice and very slight tomato-leaf-like herbaceousness. Medium- finish. Good wine, can drink now with aging potential, seems a bit shutdown so hold or decant.

  • Oops, unfair to score. Previous notes apply. I picked this out by mistake. Remains very youthful but actually in almost 6 months it is starting show character and complexity. The terroir is showing even more now and fruit more pronounced but remains too youthful to drink now.

  • As suggested we drank TOO SOON. Still evolving. Initial signs reveal great fruit and structure but balanced acidity and tannins. Howeer, this being 2017 I don't think you need to wait until 2020 albeit that is a reasonable start drinking date. I am persuaded it might resolve before that. Now this wine is thinner in style but carries a good sense of place and expresses the terroir more than winemaking. Good effort.
