Perfect wine for India’s 26th birthday. Deep garnet red with lighter edges and a ruby hue. A bit stinky on the nose to start with some fungus, gamey, forest floor, dried red berries and a little sour flowers. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Dry palate with solid acidity and notes of dried berries, cigar box, tobacco, plums, dusty and earthy. Medium plus finish. Drink now.

Road trips deserve respites. Beaufort, SC’s Old Bull Tavern spinning Marvin, Jimmi, and Stevie while casually offering up perfect garlicky oil bathed snails set upon crazy freshly baked chewy sour dough simply screams for, oh yeah, the wine. This fine Pomerol waits, wanting , her dangerously dark scarlet skin shimmers as she spins in the early evening tempted by the tunes revealing her marooning shades, darker bleeding berries, showing lighter in the wafting inconsistency of candle light. Another spin , a tilt, a voyeur’s gaze, a twirl, and a first kiss’ earthy wet spice on the front succumbs to plum its well-balanced acid clutches begging another spin, The I sip slow seductive deep kiss as she floods forward - I swallow, but she clings slowly, gradually, teetering touching sliding slowly, stealthy, soothingly, seductively signaling - have another hit... Don’t miss this wine or place, both picture perfect dripping southern edge and charm with a French accent and kiss🍷🌀

Not a bad red. Apparently I don't dislike dry reds, because I ended enjoying this in spite of that (thought I preferred fruity).

Much sweeter fruit than the Bandol, very supple and soft, but with structure and restraint.

Earthy, black cherry, pepper, spices, coffee, caramel. Molten tannins, warmth and length. Nice mouth, sweet and greasy.
