Strange mix of cherry pie filling and umami. Reductive. Never really blew off.

Cherry pie filling. Fruit bomb. Not hot but alcohol taste on finish

When with coworkers, break out the estate Magnum. Super awesome, with a good amount of acid, could still age another 10 years!

Delicious and flavorful. Not too complex, but great.

Deep Ruby with ripe black fruit aromas and earthy spices. Complex on the palate with cherry and blackberry fruit with pepper and cinnamon spice and mocha notes wrapped in fine tannic structure. Well balanced with savory tang on a great mouthfeel finish ending with earthy minerality. Tasting Sample.

Medium body, dry with sight tannic finish. Flavor is: cherry, smoky, earthy. Deep flavors, not bright. Would pair with duck, roasted lamb, smoked turkey

#openthatbottlenight choice. Fruity, spicy. One of the better Pinot noir I've had and realizing I've had a lot of cheap Pinot noir because that last few bottles I've had, I've really enjoyed
