Conrad Green

Very intense: plum, black cherry, violet, blood, hints of fresh leather. Gorgeous balance and suppleness. A salinity and pungent fruit. Excellent, but young now.

A fantastic bottle of wine! Huge ripe sour fruit and a wonderful 75 second finish that has a hint of plum, licorice, tar bubbles! If you find this wine put it in your cellar for 40 years if you want, it's got that kind of backbone
