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

Just my thing. Meaty, bacon. Chewy. So good. Great fruit and balance.

Delish! Dark, slutty like that girl you met in the Paris Hostel. Never wanted that trip to end.

Prepping for my trip to the south of France. Almost a Rhone. Very good. Kermit no less.

Crazy good but way too young, forest floor. Smoke, dense fruit and herb character...I will be buying another bottle of this and tasting in 5-8 years for comparison. I have very high hopes.1

Wow! What a nose! Leather, barn yard, earth, red fruit! So much complexity! The palate, full, robust, juicy, green olive, earthy notes, nice acidity! Rustic with a capital R!

Aromatic like a Beaujolais
Backbone of a Southern Rhone
Overlaid with uniquely Languedoc features
With all the Csiks at Mountain Standard in Vail
