Just tried ‘18, also tasted some prior vintages, I’m not a big fan. Aromas of spicy berry fruit and earthy oak scents. On the palate light cherry flavors, big acidity with tight harsh tannins. Medium finish ending with an oaky herbaceous character, lacks balance. Pass on this one. Tasting Sample.

Solid anytime wine- a little sharp on the backend but would be a lighter wine that would still hold up to spicy charcuterie or a cigar. Hammock, popcorn-for-dinner, or pair-with-traderjoes-frozen-pizza wine.

Enjoyable PN with unusual tasting notes. Nose was light maraschino cherry & brown sugar essence. Appearance is transparent electric red & legs are skinny. A debate on tastes between myself & my trusty intern...I had splash of raspberry with flavour of Kahlua throughout mouth & end of sweet chilli warmth. The intern had flavours of Lowney’s chocolate Cherry 🍒 Blossom nugget bar. Maraschino Cherry + syrup, milk chocolate, shredded coconut and roasted peanut pieces. #Grasshopper👏🏻 well played. Bargain @ $15 🍷!
