Incredible nose of dried hibiscus, mulled spices, and pomegranate. Leather, salt, and granite follow on the palate. Mouthfeel reminds me a lot of Southern Rhône wrapped in a Burgundy shell.

Used oak ferment. Smokey, cloves potpourri, plush acid, chewy tannins. Dark and deep with a good amount of brett

Where's the stuffing? A burly, rough Cru Beaj; showed a little fruit for a few hours after a day open but then shut right back down. Too much tannin, too much VA, too much Brett. Not enough wine.

A little light - but well balanced within its range and a great summer treat

Pleasantly surprised with this wine. Dried fruit, wet stone and pepper on the nose. More tannin than I normally like but this is balanced and will get better over the next 2 years
