Fermented tobacco, green olive juice and a nice touch of limestone. Elegant and refined in the mouth with early meaty, gamy juices followed by green tobacco, peppercorn, caper, herb, salt, black olive, mineral, smoke and stem. The structure here is rather light in appearance but firm in nature. The meat juice and green peppercorn notes linger on the long finish. Huge grapevine smoky scents and super fine tobacco smoke smells enchanting. Just a little lean on the mid-palate with chalky tannins on the finish, this feels at peak with a bit more to show. 92pts

paler than the Tourette- funky, gamey, grilled wild animal, a hint of vanillin, hot rocks, boysenberry, white pepper, bit of wood spice, red raspberry, really nice nose – still youthful, very bright in the mouth, excellent intensity of flavor in a decidedly medium bodied package, tannins still a bit dominant, bit of smoky mintiness, very mineral across the palate with hints of tar and licorice leading to a cherry stone finish, finishes very long and succulent, bloody, lots of amarena cherry as well. This is excellent stuff, very traditional feel, very complex, lithe in the mouth, better with another 2-3 years but I can drink this now and be very happy

Exceptionally light and fruity on the nose, yet reveals a palette that is not in line with that! Light on the tannins and oak and tastes a tiny bit like aged Gewurztraminer, in a strange way

Smell of leather, sand dust, with light hints of honey and vanilla. Very light body and tastes of ripe yet slightly acidic fruit.

The nose was deep, layered and constantly changing. It showed savory leather and beef jerky, and it then turned to noxious floral notes with chalky minerals and undergrowth. On the palate, it was balanced, juicy and savory with blackberry, pepper, and kale. The finish was clean and pure with great balanced acidity keeping it fresh.

Old perfume and wool/dust on the nose, like a grandmother's dresser drawer. On palate this has some light fruit left and is incredibly smooth and easy drinking.

funky like an old bottle should be, but still had some fruit when it hits your mouth. Smokey and a bit dusty.

Briney olive, cured meat and bread nose. Healthy tannins and increasingly savory palate with O2.
