Tasting Notes

A whiff of brett-like phenols is present on the earthy dark berry aromas that are set off by a touch of wood influence. There is terrific punch and freshness to the muscular, big and bold flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality before concluding in a powerful, serious and driving finale. This isn't a refined wine, indeed it could aptly be described as old school, yet there is plenty of underlying material. This is a difficult wine to rate because the brett character is very much a background element and there is no finishing dryness and thus my rating is a bit of a compromise.
