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

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.

This wine wallops your nose with black cherry and a quarry full of crushed stones. Almost smells like I would imagine a Mencia grown in Saint-Joseph. Very zingy in the mouth, with little tannin but good acids and tons of stony minerality. Actually played very nicely, with a very slight chill, off my pasta with garden pesto, French beans, and new potatoes. Might be a little too simple on its own tho.

Pretty austere with mineral/graphite notes, but the purple berries show themselves after the first hour.
