MMMMM-Xi-Mus

img_20161008_205825Bone-jarring concentration from the moment you sniff it, this black beast cranks out the goods and was just crowned Soif’s New Favorite South American Wine Of All Time. Wind-swept minerality, dire and dry: tweaked into conformity by brilliant euro funk and sweet pepper goodness spread under a liberal slather of decadent fruit. Tannin and acid nearly strong-arm you out to rainy street-level, but you keep coming back upstairs for the driving beats being laid down by a maestro of OG verve and classic luxe. I know I never do deets, but shut up and listen: 6000 feet above sea level, 60% bec, 100% FR, 12mos new French, 6mos post-blend, no coferment, 1000% awesome.
