This is a wine that works very well in the cooler years like 2014, 2016 or this 2018. It fermented with full clusters, but they don't want a carbonic fermentation, so they break the grapes with their feet. All of this is destined to produce an austere and cold wine, cold and savory. The night before I tasted this, I had a bottle of the 2014 that is evolving at a glacial pace; it's still young and fresh, very primary. I think this is going to have a similar evolution in bottle. This is an incredible value.- LG

This is very linear and tight with so much blue fruit and violets. Some raspberries, too. Medium body, fine tannins and a long, long finish. Electric at the end. Drink or hold.

A pure and juicy palate gets deeper and more layered with time in the glass. Plum, wild berry and savory flavors of wild herbs and stewed tomato finish with laser-like focus. Drink through 2025. - MICHAEL SCHACHNER
