A zippo being lit sans fluid, river rocks, a civil war battle, a pretzel, and applesauce spooned over said river rocks...delicious

Kumquat, tobacco leaf, parsley seed...just mind bending, palate invigorating goodness. Can not wait to get my hands on a bottle of 2012.

2011. Serious juice. But a reductive wine from this vintage. Forces you to keep going back to it to check it again. See you in 10 years
