I'm not normally a big petite fan but this deep dark brooding stuff has had 11 years in the bottle so now its earth element hovers. You gotta be on the mood for revolution.

Glass staining color. Some signs of maturity with forest floor and mushroom on the nose as well as cedar, stewed plumb and blackberry bramble. Tannins are silky smooth but with a slight grip on the finish. Blackberry, cloves, cedar, and blueberry jam on the palate. Medium finish. The last bottle of a Gary Vaynerchuk special from years ago.

17.5/20 (94/100) Красивый, комплексный аромат с нотами черничного варенья, запеченного со специями инжира, печёной груши, спелой жимолости, корицы, мускатного ореха и молочного шоколада. Тельное, спиртуозное с высокой кислотностью. Танины интенсивные, вяжущие. Вкус немного уступает аромату, но, в целом, насыщенный. Великолепно! (16.08.2018)

Great wine with bold inkiness to hold up to smoked ribs, chicken, and tri tip.

Enjoyed with tri tip. We had the magnum - very nice spice that complemented the meat.
