Balance of old and new world. Definitely a "French" nose but enough fruit on the palate to keep you happy. Still a hefty amount of tannins, could use some aging

Takes a while to open up but when it does it is very nice. Cookout with LAX wolf pack parents.

A great demonstration on earth and non-fruit characteristics in a wine.

Garnet color with hints of brown. Orange rim. Noticeable color extraction in the tears. Black cherry, strawberry, red cassis on the nose. Also nutmeg, anise, clove, leather, and earth. On the palate, strong acidity and tannins that soften as the wine continues to decant. Lingering baking spice notes and heat on the way down.

Plum plum and more plum. Hint of spice from the 15% Cab Franc.

Bay leaf & dates on the nose. Taste is a bit less exciting with some rough tannins still, but with a bitterness that draws you in again. Nutmeg

Lots of dark fruit and spice, but still nice acidity of an old world wine. Excellent choice for an excellent meal
