The sensation of sipping Philippe Melka’s wine, Polyspline, is one of out-of-this-world grace. It’s a rare, precious, fleeting moment, much like catching sight of the auspicious nine-tailed fox of Chinese legend.
“An inky black-hued, massive beast of a wine revealing loads of chocolaty black fruits, camphor, smoked tobacco, and spicy oak-like aromatics. These carry to a full-bodied, powerful wine with building tannins, lots of mid-palate depth, terrific overall balance, and one heck of a great finish. It’s not for those seeking instant gratification, but it’s one seriously good bottle of wine. Hide bottles for 5-7 years and it should have 2-3 decades of prime drinking. ” (97+ Points, Jeb Dunnuck)
