Top Notes For

Decanted 3 hrs prior to tasting.

Aromas - medium intensity green pepper and quince, red plum, dark cherry, currant, slight damp earth. Savory and stony mineral notes emerge over time.

Palate - medium bodied, medium+ acid and ripe medium tannins. Ripe fruit and mineral across an expansive yet weightless mid palate and a medium + length mineral driven finish.

The structure and complexity are here to allow for aging and I feel this will be better in 4-6 years.

The group favorite in tonight's wine tasting, paired with Ribeyes. All 3 wines were very enjoyable.
