  • Gosh this is good. Last of 3 bottles and by far the best. This is both concentrated and wild, with stellar balance - noticeably moreso than the previous bottles which slanted towards hedonism. A shock of sour cherry, rose hips, rose petals, iron, and a fistful of dried herbs. Finish is decidedly savory, minerally and long.

    Day 2: a completely different creature. Toned down, still a bit of rusticity and some scaled back iron, but the cherry fruit is hidden in wet soil, leaves and a bit of a musky perfume. Wait, is this burgundy???

  • Had side by side with the '08 Myriad Las Madres and provided a great study in contrasts. This was riper, richer, more mineral, and a total olive-bacon-game meat bomb. While fun and delicious and has a bit of wow factor, it was also over the top and totally louche - it almost feels like you need to shower and wash the sin off after drinking this. Less acid, integrated tannins and the richness suggest drinking sooner rather than later.

  • Lovely and drinking beautifully. Threw a fair amount of fine sediment so standing for a couple days and decanting is highly recommended. First thing Geoff says, “this tastes like a really ripe olive”. Yes, it does. Fully mature, drinking beautifully, with ripe black raspberry and black cherry, lavender, well balanced acid, olive, a bit of game meat, mostly resolved tannins, and a long vibrant finish.

  • Would recommend decanting. Paired with burgers and brats - not optimal pairing.
