James Halliday's Review: 70+yo vines, destemmed, open-fermented with cultured yeast, 6 days on skins, matured in French hogsheads (3% new) for 18 months. The highly charged bouquet set my antennae waving furiously, and the palate instantaneously cried wondrous quality. Black and blue fruits intersect with spices of all kinds, augmented by quality French oak. The wine has exceptional intensity to the bouquet and palate alike, but does so with a fresh, light touch. To know it is to love it at first sight.
