This is a big wine full of big contradictions. First of all, was not expecting a dark golden, almost orange hue. Had to look it up and was surprised by an SB with intense skin and malo aging. A pungent, sour nose. It’s not at all a turn off, the opposite really. At the front I get a brine, salt water character but that quickly turns into a giant sour apricot with a long lingering finish that transitions into unripe banana and spicy herbs. Medium to full body with loads of puckering acid. A unique and wildly different wine.

When you don't know if you want red or white. But you want unique and so good.

Love this stuff, so errrrbal, fresh mint/bay leaf, super expressive & über. Palate has weight pang, kick and tannin that may stun some but is exquisite!
