Decanter gives this a fair nod, and I can see why.
Cocao powdered tomato stalk wafting in this fall air.
Horehound candy, mint and dark chocolate. Freshly rolled cigar. Mint plum.
A very well put together Carmenere, sophisticated even, pardon me, it do you have any grey poupon? — a day ago
Strong Green Pepper, almond with the first tip of this glass.
Raspberry, forest floor, decaying prune.
Chocolate and tabac, long, wooden spoon finish.
This is not a great ripasso, and if it weren’t for that prune in there I would call shenanigans. It is a good wine nonetheless, yet ripasso commands more duckets these days, and if there asking, it should be good..
I will say for a wine it is good. And leave it at that.

It has been awhile since I have been able to drink from the Mtn..
absolutely lovely bouquet of grape fruit mixed with wet bark, mmmmmmm
Bramble, blackberry seed, smoked herbs. Lively tannins dancing with humbled acids. Mmmmmmmm

Sweet smell of that amazing vintage, 2015..
The pineapples signify the richness of this vintage.
Strong Cassis nose, decaying matter, forest floor, in the best of ways. Rhône lovers know what I’m a talkin about. Back full of deep cherry, deep, dark, abyss of cherry.
This is a great wine for the few 2 dimensional dead presidents bartered.. — 14 days ago
I had to whip out my didjeridoo and roll some circular breathing while drinking this wine.
Deep purple. That what this nose is.
flavors of tempered eucalyptus, mint, touch of lemon verbena, with That grape whole fruit popsicle stock to chew it all together.
Wow though. For the 10$ price, this is a very well made wine. Plus for the stelvin enclosure.
