TASTING NOTES

Oh boy…feels like the peak of their love affair with small barrels. Massively extractive and dense. Feels like it went through double-barrique treatment. Little fruit left (but feels like there wasn’t that much to start with). Very earthy, leathery and dry, but definitely not on the elegant side. Curious to retry in case this was an off bottle, but if it wasn’t – not my wine.
