Dark purple core reaching all the way to the rim. A dazzling array of ripe fruit fly out of the glass; blueberry, black plum and bring cherry with hints of mint and espresso. The mouth is full and rich, weighty with the texture of glycerine. The tannins are grippy with black tea like bite. There is an endless chorus of ripe, juicy fruit and a finish that never fades. Can't wait to try this in 10 years!

Again, silky and structured. A little higher in tannin. Grippy and good. Ageable.

Wonderful wine with a lush texture and richness. Great fruit with mulberry, black currant, boysenberry, with mushroom and fern notes. Full bodied but perfectly balanced beckoning another sip.

Really love the green flavors in this wine. Great ripe cassis and stewed red fruits with poblano a and jalapeño jelly finish. Superb!
