@ 6 years old, drinking perfect. Incredible balance of sweet and acid ensures it's not too flabby. Really complex & pleasant notes of apricot marmalade citrus orange peel cheese dried apricot stone and not overly honeyed. Each taste brings a new depth of flavor. 4.1/9.1 — 22 days ago
Solid varietal expression - loads of smoked hardwood...baked raspberries and black pepper. Solid with my hammerdown’s brisket!! — 25 days ago

This Spanish red blend is medium dark and has a nose that is loaded with red fruit, peppery herbs and smoke. The Tierra de Castilla wine is made from 34% Cabernet Franc, 27% Syrah, 15% Petit Verdot, 12% Tempranillo, 7% Graciano and 5% Garnacha grapes. The fruit forward palate has eight months of oak showing and a firm set of tannins. The flavors are somewhat deep and quite juicy.

That cherry and a hint of licorice on the nose. Beautiful full flavor with plenty of spice. Always a favorite and the again aging had only deepened the flavor. — 21 days ago
Explosive eucalyptus aroma, softer black fruit several layers below that, some violets, earthy fruit palate, dark coffee bitterness, solid foundation of acidity, tongue-hugging bold tannins and a finish that’s miles long. Bought this #mourvedre onsite at the vineyard around Thanksgiving 2019. It’s a boutique production from a vineyard site where the grape vines are growing near a large stand of ubiquitous Blue Gum Eucalyptus trees. This might be love it or hate it but it’s damn interesting. It was my wife’s birthday and we’d be waiting for the occasion to open it as we both loved it. I imagine a great pairing might be clove-studded lamb to pick up the menthol notes but we had it with pizza and it still held up well to the bold flavors of our various toppings. Fantastic. — 7 days ago
