Tight and unyielding, with a pale garnet body and clear rim. The wine exudes freshness and the snap of youth, and aromatically it seems chalky, with a mineral savoriness, almost iron, ornamented by dusty flowers and striations of oak. Lean and angular on the tongue, it delivers biting acidity and a finish that vanishes in a screen of earth and blood and flowers. Unfriendly and demanding, but pretty enough that you want to befriend it anyway. 13% abv | $65 sample

Tart and firm, good tannin, nice balance and clean... as it warms showing more black fruit and fennel. Seems like it needs some time.
