Dark Side of the Vine, Black Elephant Vintners & Co
Wow! A truly remarkable wine, this is a textured, aromatic, lengthy joy to behold. Notes of herbs, citrus, some reduction, with fantastic concentration, composure and length. No wonder it's viewed as one of the most exciting releases in recent years. Just 1,100 bottles produced, and a pleasure to drink.
