2010, it's dark, tannic and a bit earthy. Insane power on this with old world finish.

Third time having this wine. Tasted this over a few days. Had this with pizza from the Killer Tomato Pizza Truck. Color was ruby red. Nose was slightly savory, a little bit of red fruit and starch. On day one the palate was tart as soon as it hit my tongue and then dissipated into strawberries and a slight minerality. On day three it became fruit forward, very drinkable and light. Moderate tannins (5/10) with a light body. Light acidic finish that dries out my mouth. Carries on through mid palate. Very good QPR.

Shared with some non wine drinkers and this was a hit. Beautiful magnum without decant. Lighter than expected but didn't fall flat.

Big, ripe boy. Worked almost like a dessert wine for us. Pleasant for sure.

This is whaaaaa the wha so scrumptious. So juicy. So I don’t even know. It initially pours some spice n tannin n fruit then just—the juice abounds and the slight spice and it is a wonderland I can’t keep away from. So a good match for potato-y things. I can’t with this wine seriously someone else get it and tell me what they think but the juice on it does. not. quit
