Cherry, strawberry, some spice, a floral top note, almond, but that soil/mineral thing is the loveliest part of the wine here, at least for me. It’s medium-bodied, fine and pliant, with delicate acidity laced through a subtle smoky earthiness. Oak is down low, but present, and the finish is generous and expansive, emery tannin, a little spray of dried herb and dried flower perfume lingering in the aftertaste. Delicacy, integrity, and a coy youthfulness set the stage for a bright future. It’s a beautiful thing. Drink: 2020-2034+ (Jun18)
