Mr. Ed makes an appearance right out of the gates. But there is also mineral. Deep red cherries. Lipstick like intensity. Mint, menthol. Really wafting stuff. The horse blends and just becomes a component of a dizzying array of aromas. Lapalu always a thrill. Palate is rich and vibrant with tangy freshness and loads of early season cherry and good acids. Ripe and substantial tannins. Closed a bit on the very long and mineral driven finish. A nice hit of opulence as well. Crazy raw materials here but as this is Lapalu this will need hours to come together. But it’s all there.

In a great place. Voluptuous nose. Deep cherry, some earth, some feral, so alluring, huge mint and menthol, so so deep. What a nose. A knockout. Palate is so juicy and energetic. Deep and luscious with insane freshness and zowie purity. Clean and palate staining with atrocious length. Bravo.

As fun as the 2013 we had. So much character, you can almost taste the funky mud

Love his bottle. Favorite wine shop and restaurant in NOLA carry this beauty. Bright red fruit but definitely structured. Not a fruit bomb
