Mushroom, walnut, dried apricot — 5 days ago
Smells of non-sulfured mineral salts in hot spring pools and red berry in the sun. Hint of crushed walnut leaves. Flavors are lovely. Ink and plum sauce. Bing cherry near the pits and licorice pastilles. Silky but full of backbone. Lucious, elegant classic Carmènére. Reminds me of great Syrah melded with mighty Merlot and superior Sangiovese on the side. Winnor, winnor cena de pollo-r! — 7 days ago

Perfectly in the window of drinking greatness. Poured a tiny touch brown. The nose is kind of an identity crisis. Black cherry, prune, plim, walnut, cassis. Entry shows a perfectly balanced and wonderfully aged wine with dark chocolate, aged raspberry, rhubarb, tobacco and fig notes. Middle is more delicate. "Funeral flowers," dried herb, dried tobacco. Finishes soft with fig and a hint of aged black cherry. Nice. Drink now or hold another 10 to 15 years. — 2 months ago
