Stone fruit tree. Wide range of plum and black cherry notes, stones, med+ acidity, dark coffee note, flavor profile is in the red-violet spectrum. Smooth medium body with fine tannin. Tight with slightly elevated fume. Will age gracefully. Would like to see it in 3-5 years. — 13 days ago
2016 - crisp, clean, buttery, exactly why I want in a Riesling — 11 days ago
A very noble expression of Gamay, with a certain density, remarkable for this entry level. We can hardly do better in terms of value for money.

Color burgundy, quite clear. Nose of tobacco leaves, mint, strength of alcohol, ripe grapes, and nice refreshing grassy fragrance. Taste of good subtle sweetness, lots of tobacco leaves flavors, pine wood, sage, cocoa, cherry jam, ripe grapes almost grape juice, spice, almost no tannins, and medicinal syrup. Aftertaste is also quite sweet with more medicinal note. Not bad a a blend. Just too sweet for me. — 11 days ago
A blend that usually includes Syrah and merlot....this year 80% cabernet and 20% cab franc...a 2nd wine that got more cab this year since 1st wine from one of the vineyards did not get produced.
2 hour decant (little sediment). A majestic inky purple color. On the nose: dark cherry, vanilla wafer, floral, pepper, cinnamon chocolate. Taste: A medium body, fresh, juicy wine with dark plum, spice, cassis, cedar, with a raspberry mocha medium plus finish. No need to wait, drinking well now with a decant. — 6 days ago
Nose is dense mid to late season cherry with some dust.
Palate is dense cherry. Black cherries. Succulent. Really terrific fruit. A nice acid kick on the finish. Licorice?
I’m not sure how potent the secondary flavors are here. I’d be inclined to drink this over the next 2-3 years on its brilliant fruit.

Consistent notes from my last note in April 2018 although I note with age the youthful raspberry notes transform into more dried plum, earthy and meaty descriptors - the latter a bit like Biltong. Rich and savoury at the same time. 100% old vine Mataro from a single site in the Barossa. — 10 days ago
