The inverse of the famous Maceo Parker quote...except this is 98% jazz and 2% funky stuff. All the Bordeaux words: graphite, pencil shavings, cassis, cigar box, porcini, truffle, wet dirt. A tiny pop of VA and brett for the crunksters. As singular and distinctive as any $100+ classified growth, so the value proposition here is undisputed. Really a tiny lookback at what great Bordeaux wines were before 1982: 12%-ish alcohol, perfectly imperfect and a beverage for meals rather than for collectors.

Nice cross section of cranberry and bramble fruit alongside soil and herbs. A very tart and elegant frame with a bit of dimension to it. What a value.

Needed a day to open but balanced with dark Blackberry and other fruit with good acid. Hold.

Really interesting nose of earth, barnyard hints and ripe dark berries. Palate is a distinct but enjoyable mix of salt, strawberry, black cherry, licorice, spice, pencil lead and leather. Also strong note the cassis with BlackBerries and a mild coffee finish.

A young bottle. Could use a couple more years of aging. Fruity strawberry aromas. A little smoky taste.
