Enjoyed this with filet. It required a bit of breathing before it opened up; reasonably smooth a lighter on tannins; perhaps slightly young? — 15 hours ago

Fruit from Abreu Madrona and Thorevilos vineyards.
Decant for sediment (lots of chunky/fine sediment). A startling purplish reddish magenta color. On the nose: plum, creme de cassis, smoked meat, mint, vanilla nuts. Taste: This Songbook is singing! A smooth, velvety, balanced medium body wine with blueberry, bitter chocolate, red currants, spice, tar, and a minerally cedar semi dry finish. Nice start to the weekend! — 4 months ago
Nose is floral with integrated richness. Expansive. As this opens you get the godspice. So penetrating and expansive. Elegantly rich. Mountain air infused with Chardonnay. Ocean air. Bit in a good way. Like you are watching the sunset on a cliff with a light breeze.
Palate is lovely rich fruit. Delicious. Good minerality. Almost a mountain meursault feel. Terrific crunchy acids as this opens. Oyster shells
Still a hint of oak. Should dissipate in 6-12 months.
Man this is a beautiful wine. It’s its own thang. Nothing exactly like it. Could be a higher score in 2 years.
