Second time tasting this wine with different vintage. Earthy, herbal, a little funky, dark berry and cherry note, menthol with wet potting soil, unripe to ripe fruit notes. Distinctive on the nose but tasty!

So go and live a little
Bone turns brittle
And skin withers before your eyes
Make sure you give a little
Before you go to the great unknown in the sky
