This is very good. The nose is a noble blend of fresh cherry-tobacco and a hint of creamy leather. A full mouth of medium+ bodied, peppery goodness, with the ash/minerality of southern Italy. Medium tannins. An efficient use of dollars.

Wow. I love this, then not sure, then love it again. The blend is interesting. Faint red fruit nose, some powder perfume also. Medium plus bodied, medium tannins that are pleasant. It's the middle I can't describe. I decanted for 1 hour or more, but it's a bit alcoholic midway. Still, I love it. It feels like the inverse of last night's wine. Both 50 bucks. Stags Leap Investor is big with a round mouthful in the middle, but the open is is a tad candyish and the finish underwhelming. I like them both for different reasons.
