Peach yogurt, yogurt, yogurt, yogurt/zinc... other than that, jammy bramble, black pepper, spearmint. Pretty pink/ruby at medium concentration. Little staining. Dry with ripe (overripe?!) attack. Moderate acidity and tight tannin. Full throttle.

Beautiful Zin, well balanced and supple. I don't say his often about Zin. Coincidentally this wine made it to no. 12 on WS top 100 wines of 2017. Well deserved. WS 93 Pts. Top 10 2017 tasting at NCWC.

Medium purplish red. Dark spices on the nose, bitter cocoa, oak barrel, some animal nuances, light cherries, a touch smoky and crushed gravel. Tight on the tannins (6.5/10) not yet rounded. Complex palate yet tight as well with notes of raw twigs, bramble berries, anise, spices, dried cherries, a touch of alcohol and pepper. Long finish with definite potential to improve once the palate rounds out. Drink till 2024.

This wine defies all expectations. You take a sip and you think you understand, that is until you have another. Every essence of it is subtle yet complex in the fact that due to the subdued components, it's exceptionally balanced. Each taste gives me a new opinion. Get this for the spice, get this for the fruit, or the celery, or the oak. Just get it.

Bright purple red in color. Cherry, berry, leather and barrel wood in nose. Raspberry, cherry and black pepper notes in mouth. Tight tannins, needs lots of time to open
