This...this has shown its potential, and it was obvious from the moment the cork was removed. Beautiful caramelizing fruit emanating to the nostrils while the eyes behold a rich, purple core with a light rim and fast legs. Flavors of small, crushed berries, leather, the texture is so smooth with a finish that opens up so nicely, lingering for 10-15 seconds. A fantastic food wine for red sauces, cheeses, some fatness (oil or meat). Some spiciness began to emerge, black pepper, some salty air from the nearby ocean. This is the fantastic value it was built to be. Has life ahead indeed, but ready now.
