What a nose. Embers, smoke, spice, loam, superbly mineral and almost saline. Beautiful cherry fruit under it all. Dark and so perfumed. Huge spice and aromatic depth while also being a kind of restrained wild. Lovely, penetrating aromas. Can’t get enough. Palate has just ridiculous juicy and dense fruit with substantial tannins. Bright cherry fruit and wonderful freshness. Huge acids. Terrific concentration, freshness and energy. This is so complete. A baby but still delicious. Leaves a fruit/tannin impression for minutes. Very solid 9.4.

Such a soulful wine. Spice & cherry on the nose, palate starting to advance, softening tannins, juicy cherry fruit, plenty of fresh acidity, tobacco, leather. Silky texture. Fabulous & a beautiful pairing with entrecôte.

Wow. Awesome.

Nose is raisins made from grape flowers.

Palate is juicy and dense cherry. Perfect balance between density fruit and acidity. Really well made.

Texture is silk. Fucking silk. So good.
