Smells Like crushed lilacs growing amongst gravel
Light bodied, Sour Croatian cherry, menthol, classic French twig and branch, gravel, raspberry, all bright red fruits.
Medium tannin, good acidity, yet neither bitter nor overpowering. Quaff away! — 2 months ago
A Gary Larson cartoon comes to mind: Where smoked meat comes from - showing a cigarette smoking cow behind a barn.
This type of flavor from a good Rhone Syrah used to be common. Smelling this in a Wash state wine is amazing. Needs to be cellar temp for sure - lovely compote, blackberry nectar, a necco wafer, light tannin, yet mouth filling sweet tart acidity.
Reminds me of those old school wines of yore. — a month ago
First good wine back from a trip to the islands.
Some islands can get much better wines than others.
A neat blend, ripe cherry nose.
Thick jam persists. A pleasant wave of gravelly fruit, violets, dark cherry, Pomegranate juice.
A great wine to come back to. — 2 months ago
Smells of blackberry jam
More of this boldness continues in the wine - almost like a Zin has been bottled under a Syrah Label. Juicy body, red and black fruit purée, a hint of mint and moisture sucking tannin. It’s like a reset for the palette. Time to go again!
