Easily one of the most glorious wines I’ve had this year. Ranks up there with Qupé 2005 Block X enjoyed last year. A phenomenal wine, beautiful garnet, good sediment, raspy asphalt nose all dirty baby diaper and black walnut and sweet, sweaty, acid-tinged fruit delicate and robust all at once, incredibly ripe and mired in tertiary. Then you taste it, and the fresh strength and inter-twined species leaves you speechless. I’ve wasted a lot of these wines on people un-deserving and that will never happen again. Holy fucking wow.
