Pretty nice full body, blueberry and blackberry on the palate.. Touch of barnyard, mint, and a lingering finish.. Real nice blend of Malbec, cab, and Syrah.

Off aromatic to the nose, reviewed two bottles and I think it was the fruit condition and aging. Wait till the next vintage.

Double decanted. Light mouth feel but tannic. Likely better tomorrow evening.

Very bold, full bodied, complex - almost too full bodied. This is a BIG wine. Enjoy if you can handle it.

Simple red of cab, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Some tannins but not overdone.

2012 vintage. $24 @ total wine If I can find this for $10, I'll buy all of the bottles they have. Damn good stuff.

Love this blend - Malbec, Syrah, Cab. Big and voluptuous, will be interesting to see how this one ages.
