Top Notes For
Sean Lyons

Nose: intense right out the bottle - cranberries, moist leaves, mud, pine needles, cherries, some notes of stewed plums and a little funkiness, like a good hard cheese.
Tongue: explosive, dark and beautiful. The stewed plums are more prominent on the first sip, as is the cheesy funkiness. The structure is just perfect and the acid assertive. It needs to be to stand up to the bold fruit flavors. It tastes a little hot, but not so much that it flies out of balance. A really delicious wine that is drinking perfectly in May 2023.
