One of the extra bottles from the Jack Winery and ARNYCA Cellars tasting last night with Steve Distler.
Deep purplish red with ruby edges. Well balanced nose with layers of earth, red currants, tobacco, damp earth and a touch floral. Medium dry tannins (6/10) with a medium plus body. Quite a bit of acidity with bramble, black currants, cherries and earthiness. Long finish. Drink till 2024. — 12 days ago
