White before red. Just an incredible array of aroma and flavors with every sip. Cooked black plum, dried black cherry, dried rose petals, dust, cracked pepper, cedar, wood smoke, fur, olive, leather, cocoa powder, garrigue, tar, hot iron, black tea. Everything about screams rustic but the elegance of tannin and lengthy finesse counter everything peasant about it. More impressive on day 2 is the seamless nature of it, harmonious from front to back, gaining more an overall savory and meaty profile. The shiitake, cured meat, hoisin, talcum and leather really starting to unfold. I think this could be beautiful in 5-8 years, but I love the fruit component at this moment.

Smashing! Richly textured, very long, balanced acidity and held up with by tannic strength. The alcohol is not intrusive at all which surprised me given the ripeness here. Grilled pineapple, grilled peach, honey, yellow flowers, warm earth, anise, dried herbs, fenugreek, white tea, mushroom, marzipan, olive. — 9 days ago

Lovely wine for the price.. not overly complex but a very nice easy drinking wine with fruity notes rather than earthy. — 9 days ago
Wow! I love this. Very grown up!! Plenty of beautiful red fruit but cloaked in a lovely balanced mid bodied structure; perfect acidity, just lush! I could drink…well, FAR too much!! — 8 days ago
Nicely structured local red, blend of Merlo, Syrah, Malbec and CS, with some wood aging.
Black berries & mulberries, a fresh flowery note (violets, lavender), dried herbs, a savoury, earthy undertone. Fresh!
On the palate this is balanced with juicy, grippy tannins, good flow, savoury with the fruit adding rather than dominating. Nice mouthfeel, good drinkability, alc held nicely in check (13%).
A proper french food wine! — 9 days ago
Very zesty! Meyer lemon and a hint of melon. Very refreshing and interesting on a hot summer day. — 9 days ago
