Tannic at the start, but blossomed throughout the dinner. Black pepper, bing cherry, gritty yet soft.

Deep garnet red. Dark red fruits with baking spices and creamy dark cocoa on the nose. Moderate tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Slightly dusty on the palate with notes of dark cocoa and a little savory in the medium plus finish. Pretty well integrated and a beautiful wine for under $20. Drink till 2022.

Vintage 2008 - oatmeal in smell, which I don't like 😡 The taste is better, good balance and acidity

Round, rich full bodied elegance, tannins are fairly well resolved and intergraded for an 09. Dark fruits, expresso coffee grounds, saddlewood, dark chocolate, violets, soft spice, nice use off oak that reveals a cinnamon /vanilla barrel toast good acidity and a long beautiful finish that lasts.
