Takes for ever to open.
Steep and rustic at first, when open, it’s friendly and round.
But make no mistake, even once open, after the smooth soft entry, it morphs into a very animal, wild and steep experience. Not falling flap, more the opposite! Yum! — 11 days ago
Gorgeous nose of mid season cherries, huge stoney minerality, cherry flower and licorice. Really elegant and ethereal. Stunning depth and sweetness and unreal clarity to the fruit. Dense and structured but also elegant and sappy. Wow. This is a true wow wine. Amazing fruit presence. After air nose gets crazy floral with roses and violets. Terrific concentration, structure and density allied with freshness. This is outrageous. Wow. Totally crazy, long finish. Genius wine. The nose gets crazier and crazier as it opens. More layered and more detailed. OMG this is so juicy and complex. Beautiful tannins. Almost a 9.6. I think it is one now but I’m only 99.5% sure. What a wine. — a month ago
Just fantastic now. On the nose: soft oak spice, ripe stemmy notes morphing into a soft earthy musk. On the palate: fantastic acidity, excellent density, pomegranate and sour cherry, then slightly rustically styled tannin on the hi-toned finish. An absolute winner, especially for the price. — 14 days ago
