A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: The aerified funk is one of thick, recalcitrant atmosphere and is joined by a moment of fromage. Stone fruit and very mineral tang juicy, condensed and weighty palate. This is big and delicious if of a very specific style. Acidity offers up a lambasting paradox of clean coherence and the finish is a treat. Drink 2016-2020.
