We need to talk about this wine. Not only is it a fresh faced one, it's a sly one, too - drinking about 1.5 - 2x its price. As if that weren't enough, it has that ephemeral, je ne sais qoui / fairy-dust quality you find in great Burgundy. Need I say more?? #getsome #powertotheneely

Rather bold and somewhat "soda-poppy" considering the coolness of 2011. Oak is too prominent at the moment.

Spicy cherry and strawberry: ripe, bright cherry cola with lavender sage and dash of new leather, just a micro-touch hot at 14.8%.

Ok. Too much spice and alcohol for my taste. Better on night 2

So yummy! The nose is beautiful, on the palate, there is typical scm fruit and really complex forest floor, minerals, and hints of mushroom. I am guessing this is the perfect amount of aging for this. I wish I had another bottle!
