The palate on this was rocking from the first minute in the decanter but the nose took some time to come around. Initially the nose was very balsamic and one dimensional but over the course of 90 minutes it developed scents of forest floor, dusty mahogany, and macerated cherry. Palate is amazing, with intense, sweet dark cherry fruit, moist humus, savory minerals, and old barrel notes. Great concentration counterbalanced with softness of texture and decent acids. Great length and purity. Superb. — 21 days ago
This California red blend is always enjoyable. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, wood and spices.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity.
Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with a nice mouthfeel.
Showing mild complexity and easy drinking, so watch out.
15.5% alcohol by volume.

Slow oxed. By the last glass was getting delicious cherry pie. On the nose: cherry, baking spice, a touch of oak/vanilla. In the mouth, the acid is just right. Very enjoyable. — 2 days ago
This is our go to wine with Italian food. Excellent with spaghetti, or instance. Delicious with red sauces, and excellent with chocolate. Dry, long legs, easy drinking, a fair amount of tannins.￼￼￼ — 2 days ago
