Big and Bold Red Field Blend. Ripe plum and black fruit aromas along with notes of asphalt and smoke. Blackberry fruit flavors with highlights of wood, slate, earth and black tea. Firm tannins and bone dry, but plenty of acidity to keep the wine balanced. Big, rich and rustic. Might need a bit more bottle aging. Outstanding QPR. — 18 days ago

Physically Distanced 🚧 but Socially Close 🤗 dinner, our first in +8mo. Following the reasonable NY State dining regulations, seated and masked. While a new experience, it was well worth it to see our core group again. — 6 hours ago
Really well made wine. Balanced. Super deep purple in colour. Dark fruit. A bit of coffee. Lots of oak. A lot is going on with this. Love it!
But... is it worth it?

Very drinkable, lighter red, dry, pairs nicely with food. We had buttered halibut. Would definitely buy again for the price. — 13 days ago
Field blend. No way to know exactly what the breakdown of grapes is in this wine. Old vine red that features super ripe plum, fig and cherry fruit with highlights of dark chocolate, balsamic vinegar and tobacco. Hint of mineral on the very long finish. A beautifully rustic wine made in a traditional rustic style. — 22 days ago
Breaking into a bottle from a 2019 trip to Douro. Beautiful - eggplant hued and powerful on the nose. I’m very glad I stuffed a bottle into my suitcase to bring it home. Earthiness, licorice, freshly cracked black pepper balanced with a touch of citrus and strong tannins. A perfect bottle. — 7 hours ago
