Wild berry, earth spice, bit of pickle barrel, minerality, hint of tar, med tannin and cocoa on the finish. Doing some justice with filet and sautéed mushrooms. Pardon the paper plate, feeling a bit lazy :)

Weird... If it was a blind taste, I'd swear this was young. As a 2010, I am unpleasantly surprised. A Sambuca nose. With clove or some Christmasy spice. Not digging it. Maybe it will pair with this fish but I'm not optimistic. Big letdown after starting the night with a bottle of Veuve. Shout out to peeps @Bill Bender and @Shay Aldriedge And @Kimberly Anderson .
