A wine that reveals itself in stages. A fabulous nose of red fruit and the scent of a seasoned cast iron skillet. The creamy red fruit is an assault on your palate The wonderfully concentrated fruit is eventually joined by pepper, ash and mineral like notes. Put weight on while it was in the decanter but never lost its elegance. @Marc Goldstein Puritan was a wonderful experience with some of the best appetizers I have ever consumed, swordfish pastrami, bbq beets and beef carpaccio.

A fun wine hidden on a horrible wine list. The joys of finding that hidden gem to salvage a meal

A baby but lovely. Lifted perfume with an edge of nice funk. Gorgeous weighting.

Super old vines, great balance and volcanic minerality.

Robe rubis avec une légère évolution
Nez cerise confites et d épices et réglisse
Bouche soyeuse avec de la rondeur et finale plus fraîche avec des notes de cerises acidulées
Très beau vin et superbe précision

From 140 year old vines (pre phylloxera) this is a powerful beauty.

I have a cold so my nose is stuffed, but I this wine is intensely aromatic with dark Cherie and wet forest. Will do well to set aside this bottle for at least five more years.
