This wine's reluctant nose gives away only a tender red-fruit note. The palate comes in with shy poise, clinging to fresh, tart red-cherry fruit on a concentrated body. It is svelte and toned, yet steely in its concentration and intent. As of yet, the wine is unyielding, but this is why it is so full of promise. A wonderful balance just comes down on the side of freshness while the warmth of 2018 broods like a genie yet to be released.
