Nose : earthy.
Palate is bright cherry. Cherry cough syrup. Good acidity. Good grip.
Let’s see how this develops.
Much better with air. A little Ungiving on open. Gets much better. This rose lilac cherry flower perfume. Lovely. Very old school. Perfume gets very intense at times. Rose extract.
Palate is gently grippy. Very old school Nebbiolo. Cherries but like old dusty cherries If that makes sense. Lovely tannic grip. Juicy. Delicious.
3 hours in. Dusty rose. Lilacs on the nose
Palate is almost pure spice. A hint of bitter cherry pit. Delicious. Wow.
A very singular wine. Needs a 2 hour decant to show its best.

Dark, deeply black fruited, pleasantly bitter and mineral. The depth, freshness, and rocky core are my favorite parts of this wine. Steely tannins are raw, lively, and rustic in their appeal. Brett and VA in check, beautiful structural balance. Crushed black cherry, black plum, medicinal herb, crushed rock, clove, violet. — 22 days ago
I asked for a cozy, wintry, fireplace kind of wine with earthy, smoky, peppery, and meaty notes, and that’s what I got! Dark cherry, black plum, finocchiona salami, black pepper, cumin, leather, tobacco smoke, fresh earth, wet clay, Chinese five spice, sanguine minerality. Vibrant acidity and well-integrated tannins; beautifully balanced. Somehow both rustic and polished. Enjoyed on the last night of the worst year in history. — a month ago
What an aroma. Tar, dried dark roses, huge minerals and earth. Wet leaves. Burgundian. Chestnut. So aromatic. No fruit but it comes. Palate is mega juicy and deep. Beautiful pure dark cherry fruit and terrific sap and energy. Does close down on the finish. But so pure with a hit of opulence and unreal roundness. Awesome. Balanced and so much fruit. But structured and built for the long haul. — 2 days ago
