Youthful intensity. Extrovert. Very well made and balanced. Sexy, but needs time to bring out more class. Fruit, elegance and openness are key here.

Shouldn’t be drunk right now. Not because it’s unpleasant, but rather due to inability to express all the complexity at this age. Felt quite young, simple and well-made at the beginning (2 hrs. decanted), but grew increasingly more interesting and layered in the glass over the next 3 hours. Rating is as of now, age should add more stars.
