This is a very tasty Bordeaux blend from Lodi. Showing nice complexity, but a little unbalanced.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity (and some RS), on the palate with blackberries, black currants, eucalyptus, black plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, Mediterranean spices, espresso, cola, light herbs and black pepper.
Tangy finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.
This 5 year old is big, bold and extracted. A little much, but very enjoyable.
This is an Orin Swift look alike, from the bottle look, to the wine style.
Good right out of the bottle, and better after 90 minutes of airtime.
Thank you Wendy for sharing this with me.
Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years, and see if it calms down a bit.
