ONX Level 22 Proprietary Red 2015
Like Metallica? Surfing 80-foot waves? Monster, blockbuster, pedal-to-the-metal California blends (imagine The Prisoner on some anabolic steroids)?? How about killer blends with DOUBLE 93-POINT scores, at way, WAY below anything deemed rational?? We GOT you. This baby is a LEVIATHAN! Don’t miss, please!
OK, it’s BIG, but it’s not going to hurt you, promise. That’s because it’s also rich, dark, purple, ripe, juicy, and literally EXPLODING with secondary aromas and flavors beyond the blackberry jam and strawberry pie -- man!! Hard to encapsulate it all for you, but let your brain and mouth wander off to your favorite place for dessert, because while it’s a dry wine, it’s redolent with mocha, Caramello bar (or Rolo!), pie crust, perfume, incense, licorice, and a terrific savory finish that is a bit like sweet soy. TONS going on here, a head-spinner of a bottle that is meant to make an impression. Our price should too, for a double 93-pointer!! Amazing! Not a lot of this one!!
