Exquisite Grenache plum and leathery Syrah jump from the glass with a dusty touch of non-Brett barnyard. Black cherry, licorice, burnt rye toast, blackberry, raspberry reduction, and violet aromas. Big blackberry and luxardo cherry opener, with black currant and ripe black plum. Smooth edges all around here, with grape leaf, and a grape or two too. Touches of mint with bitter chocolate expressions make this a dance of equestrian beauty as saddle leather sage and dark cigar coat the finish. Bolero. .

#blends are usually my go to. Here we see a little too much oxidation for my taste. Big dark color, dried prune, cherry candy, and a touch of Italian parsley. Still carries some sugar, and some reduced Sulfur notes of onion, but those blew off over time. The structure here is out of balance with the acid so it over plays the rest of the mouth. #nmwine — 3 years ago
