Rally smooth, with great balance. Paired well with steak and with shellfish; an easy go-to. Props to Joe's on Grand for having it on the list!

Hadn't been a big fan of Tempranillo before this. Now I may be a convert if I can find others in this style. Great structure with a good amount of dark fruit and a rich texture. There was definitely some oak flavors coming though as well. While this was bold there still was a nice acidity that kept it tamed. Very enjoyable.

Pure and focused on the nose, with ripe cherry, fresh savory herbs, hints of undergrowth and dusty soil tones. For all its finesse, there's a tremendous amount of underlying depth, just hinting at what's yet to come. It's silky, enveloping the palate in rich stone fruits, sweet spice, minerals, cedar and inner florals. It finishes structured with concentrated red berry fruit and minerals lingering long. This is beautiful now, but the best days are ahead.
