Floral, spicey, mocha, gorgeous fineness and clarity. Soft and juicy. Lovey finish. Super juicy and clear. Red fruited. Terrific freshness and acidity. Awesome length. Nose is so high toned. Cote Rotie like. Purple jelly donut vinous though. Fine tannins. Maybe needs a steak. Awesome minerals.

Love this wine. Sylvain has made leaps and bounds in quality since I started working with him. Gorgeous nose. Red fruited granite infused very boisterous nose. Some nice chocolate and cocoa. Gorgeous lift and so clean. Palate is juicy and complex with wonderful elegance and terrific high quality tannin. So fresh and dazzling length. Terrific concentration and purity. This is totally showing out of its mind.

Fabulous. Bloody mineral nose. Spicy dark fruits on the palate. Stingy acids. Graphite. A hint of licorice on the finish. I love this! Bought from Fass Selections.
