Smoky, strawberry, resolved nose, nice thyme and bit of stem, bacon and pork fat. Soft, fairly opulent, lovely acid and mineral notes, this still has plenty of strawberry fruit and bright acids on the moderately long finish. Crisp and still snappy, lovely fruit. I really love the brightness here. The tannins are dusty and just under the fruit at this point. A bit of a one trick pony but nicely done, gets better with air, more red fruit emerges. 89pts

The nose was pretty, showing a mix of ripe berries and bacon notes, along with floral stems with a hint of barnyard and old library book. On the palate, it was at first aggressive, then airy and soft showing focused red fruits and hint of old wood with balanced acidity keeping it juicy and fun. The finish was medium-long and still showed a bit of tannin.
