Really nice and once it got some air it just took off. Perfect balance of acidity and roundness with a hint of honey. Seriously impossible to not like.

Delightful wine with fine tannins that was remarkably approachable! Dark fruit in the background - enjoyable alone or with food.

👁️ This is a pale ruby wine.

👃🏻 On the nose are medium(+) intensity, developing, and robust, notes of wild strawberry, cherry 🍒, raspberry, pomegranate, violet, anise, fennel, nutmeg, clove, cedar, tobacco; also delicate mushroom and earth notes.

👄 On the palate, this wine is dry with medium(+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol (13.5%), medium, fine-grained and well-integrated tannins, medium(+) intensity of flavors that are consistent with the nose. The finish is medium(+).

This wine is delicious, ripe and fruity with developing complexity that I’d love to check-in on in another 10 years. It is just starting to show signs of development and I could see it improving with additional bottle age. The acidity and structure will carry it forward for years to come. Cheers!!

Super solid bottle. Don’t think it’s worth the price unfortunately.

Ok Burgundy, I think I’m starting to understand you. Recommended by Matt Arnold at WineFeed, this is an elegant wine. There is a grounded etherealness to it. Is that a word? Anyway, the delicate cherry, raspberry and orange peel maintains weight with an almost sappy quality that never gets close to being cloying. Faint earthiness in the background. Good depth but is impressive through balance and drinkability.
