Intense perfume as you'd expect with power and structure from the monster vintage.

Un poco cansado, aún así disfrutable, un mito que deseaba probar.

My first #chateaurayas and now I understand the hype. Very Burgundian in style but this is just a unique wine deserving its own category. This wine had profound complexity and was perfectly balanced. It is so young. #chateauneufdupape #southernrhone #rhonevalley #grenache #ctbucklinwine

Hauntingly good nose. In and out of cherry syrup on the palate.

So much to say, but yet so much more to tell. Hold onto this one for future study.
