This was magic in a bottle. When I first opened it, I could tell this would be an out of body experience. Dark color that kept darkening with some time. Clearly a very old wine that has somehow managed to retain incredibly rich, supple fruit, while also being fresh and lively. Deep dark plum and berry fruit with tons of truffle, smoked meat, and a good shot of brett (in a good way) that made this as layered and complex as any red wine I’ve had in years. Finish sailed on and on. Great food match with grilled NY Strip Steak, Gratin Dauphinois, and Sicilian Salad. This was as good as a bottle of 1990 Montrose years ago and similarly bretty (again in a good way). If I had to score this in terms of numbers, it would be in the very high 90s. Insanely good.
