Definitely a bit more old world. Not overbearing, but a nice bit of tannin and acidity that carried through. Would be great with some short rib right about now. #pnv15 #atlaspeak

Light smoke, blackberry, and mint on the nose. The palate is deftly balanced. Fruit, acidity, and tannins all in harmony. Leans more towards the old world and I like that. Crushed blackberry, plum, eucalyptus, and rich earth. I loved the elegance of this wine. Thank you, @Martin G Rivard for sharing this beauty. Cheers to you and Christine!

This is a model of restraint. The nose is delicate, offering plums, blackberries, spices, and the lightest hint of tobacco.
The palette is subtle and plush. Tannins are still somewhat ripe. Texture is silky. Finishes lifted with warm spice and sweet oak. This is a classic. If fruit-bombs aren't your style, take a look at this example. Absolutely stunning.
@Martin G Rivard - thank you my brother. This is sheer brilliance (as you remarked). Wifey and I are aligned with our rating.
