I think this is around 15% but it doesn't have a hint of the heat that over-powered this wine 2 years ago. A balanced beauty now. Ripe cherry, floral notes and I do pick up some of the stem flavor (I think they employ whole bunch fermentation) but to me I like the character it provides. Modern? Yes. Big? Yes. Do I like it? Yes. Do I like Burgundy more? Yes. Do I like both blondes and brunettes? Absolutely. So why can't we have both?

Great surprise. Wasn't as hot or disoriented as expected from young BC. Loved the fruit. Awesome few sips.
