Staining brick considerable sediment. Chalkboard richness expresses itself in streams of shrill eucalyptus and graphite back-dimples of sexy fat. Robust sake in birch boxes grind effusive peach nectar and Jo Malone into figgy pudding, red carpet cleavage and stretched satin. Intoxicating to be around, you try not to fangirl too hard and merely bow while dense disgusting fruit–polished to within an inch of its life–plays the 17-year minuet. An absolute orgasm of a wine.
This winery plays the Spanish and Italian varieties hard, blending Tempranillo and Sangiovese into Cabernet in decadent rich elixirs unseen anywhere else in the Napa Valley. If you like super-tuscan and Ribera del duero in huge ripe quantities, this is something to seek out.
