Really fun to drink. Body of a Cabernet Franc but with sweet fruit and savory herbs (not green). Yum.

Not a good wine to drink by itself. Like a smoky, dusty cru Beaujolais. Nose is bubble gum with smoke and dust. Went well with a variety of foods. I'm reserving judgment.

This wine started out pale, earthy and lean. With several hours of exposure to air it bloomed. Deeper color, nose of tart cherry an wet stone. Medium bodied with firm, drying but fine grained tannin. Worked pretty well with mushroom risotto.

Big fan of this wine, last of three bottles. Like I said before this is like a Spanish, Saint Joseph. Big and bold nose of graphite, tar, dirty raspberry and blueberry, and violets. Similar palate with a ton of good acid and mild tannins. Excellent food wine and quite pleasurable to drink during dinner preparation.
