Deep and intense showing black currants, iron, charcoal smoke and hints of smoked meats and saddle leather. Finishes with excellent length and concentration. Best after 2 hour decant.

There are these moments in recorded music where something gets reissued today from like the 70s or 80s on a crisp new vinyl press. Nobody's seen the original because it's so damn rare. And the recording just fucking bumps so hard and the soul of the music is so deep, from the ages when synths and sample banks were too far off to care about. Ya, this. This is the one. Don't be afraid to drink this today. You will be rewarded with soul. It will be difficult to return to trap hats and people with no talent feeding you meaningless poetic dribble. And my apologies to Amass, we put you up against this. Unfortunately this wine won in the end by a long shot and the 30 chefs in your kitchen were all slain by 3 generations of farmers working side by side.

Rich perfume, exotic black fruit. Huge and impressive explosion of spice, dark fruit lavender, refined tannin that is almost chewy in density and richness. Huge finish.

Everybody Clape your hands. The King of Cornas has just entered the building. Albeit, he walked in backwards and with his teeth stained purple... #thedayofkings #KLWMafterhours
