Yeah, so, I’m a fan of this one. Some orange and zest. A little campfire, but not smoke taint, more like toasted marshmallow and graham cracker. If it had chocolate itd be a s’more. Caramel instead.

Very dark. Purple urple. Smell is funky, and streaked with a jam of the vine. Flavors are full and tasty. Ripe, and bright. Reminds me of the great WA Malbec I had once. Past that grape Koolaide of Malbec you get sometimes. — 10 days ago
Hello. Have we met before??? This is love at first sight, first taste. Incredible complexity and depth with lingering intensity. Near perfect structure and feel. I’m super into the game-y dried meats underlying overtones of blackberry fruit, raspberry jam, and brilliant iris and violet nose. I can almost chew it and I wish I could. — 10 days ago
It’s your typical Rod Strong cab, which is what they want. Easy, quality, and consistent. Light jams and solid structure. Not going to blow you away but always going to please. — 9 days ago
A true joy to drink. Leathery Virginian pipe tobacco, great structure, tons of feels (the mouth kind, not the emotional kind, though… I guess it depends on your level of intoxication.) There’s good, darker fruits in here too, let’s not forget. — 9 days ago
Yeah. I’m into this. Take some old oak twigs, put it in a blender with squeezed tobacco juice and a blackberry tart, and sip on this like a smoothie for days. Its powerful, rugged and hard, but with a soft side that it doesn’t want you to see. When you can break it, it gives you everything you want with elegance and grace. — 10 days ago
