Truly spectacular and meant for those who want a vinous carnival ride, not a food wine. Incredibly long, bursting with layers of intense flavors- beginning with tropical fruits which gain in strength but are quickly overwhelmed by a granite/stone wave which lasts for about 10 seconds. The wine then turns back around toward a classic, rustic hermitage finish which goes on and on. All of this is going on with the volume turned to the max.... Great experience that has you thinking about it over the following weeks.
You need to spend time with this beauty to find it's true face. Evolved from bitter to creamy, then to mineral, next comes oaky, goes to burgundy Montrachet, then super sweet. Stopped there and put nitrogen in, will try more next day, hope more in coming. Keeps evolving and the experience was superb. Definitely give it high score due to the complexity and beautiful evolving path.
