2012 Vintage. Dark fruits, garrigue, Faugeres funk, Bootsy Collins bass solo soul, earthy goodness. Fuh-schtinkin'. Plenty of tannins; hide in a dark, cool place for a couple years. Very good. Rebuy.

Blackberry compote, cassis, garrigue, white pepper, game, iron, wet gravel, violets. Rounded acid/minimal smooth velvet tannin balance, medium bodied, juicy texture, earthy-peppery-smoky finish. Funky slightly fizzy texture blows off after 30 minutes, becomes more balanced. Rustic, interesting and alive. Exceeds beyond price point.

Fizzy and funky at first. Give it an hour or two and it really balances out. Great table wine.
