James Suckling described this as tasting of ivy and forest floor. Say what? There is pronounced vanilla, a smoothness that is as deceptive as black ice, giant tannins and gobs of plummy, jammy fruit. We didn’t get the tightness Robert Parker alluded to but we do agree a dozen in the cellar will pay huge dividends. At the price it’s a slam dunk and exceptional in more ways than it’s worth describing. Buy now, buy lots; the holidays will be upon is in weeks.
Price: An astonishing $23 at Everything Wine
Market Liquidity: A case for the wedding. Or just to drink on Tuesday nights.
