Wow! Entering the prime drinking plateau, this once severely wild wine nowadays show elegance and great balance. The oak and tannins are beautifully resolved, and the dark fruits perfectly aligned with its acidity and forceful minerals on the endless finish. Stunning showing! Thru 2025 at least.

It sort of pushes everything wine related a bit further. 2012 vintage is simply stunning! Not built for everyone and "purists" should stay away.

Huge huge wine. Almost too much. Oak, thick body, gobs of fruit. Can't drink a whole lot of this by myself but it's fine to share.
