Served blind during my group's tasting last night - this was in a beautiful state. Earthy red fruit, a wealth of flowers, spice and just about anything you could care to throw out there all came together in an aroma that was just a pleasure to linger over. The structure actually showed more in the way of acid than tannin (surprising once the bag came off), and it was properly in balance. The finish was long, and accented the earth and floral elements, finishing with just a hint of spice.

Wonderful wine.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
