This is amazing. Nose has an earthy bark thing. Smells like a dry forest with a tropical element. Resinous quality as well. Herbal element. Palate is explosive, powerful, yet elegant and concentrated. So much more to say but fun to drink now.

Wonderful dinner with wine pairing. This one took us by surprise and we've been looking for it since, looking to stock up!

Jesus. A monster. Wow. A bit closed on open but a fantastic wine. So rich but balanced. Long finish. Gives the pleasure of aged old northern Rhone wires without the wait. Wow.
