There’s a lovely sour twang to the nose of this wine – it’s gamey and also full of sour black cherry: typical BF. But the palate pushes the acidity almost too far, it’s piercing with slightly bitter tannins. The balance is off here, even if there’s a thrill to the palate. Perhaps this will come together in the bottle. Right now, it’s nerve jangling and a bit harsh. (barrel sample)
