Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

A blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cab Franc & 25% Cab Sauv, aged in 100% new oak, deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, sweet oak and spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and plum with sticky cacao and woodsy spice. Big firm grippy tannins, medium+ finish ending with notes of tar and tobacco on a tight finish. Needs time in the bottle. Tasting Sample!

This is a big, brooding wine. Bell pepper, graphite and leather dominate the palate. Highly tannic but stays on the acceptable side. Merlot really comes through.

Not terribly impressed. Wasn't corked at all but after 2+ hours of decanting tasted fairly one dimensional. I normally enjoy a darker, non fruit forward wine but this wasn't doing it for me. I was hoping for more this evening but what do I know. Hope it pairs well with Joes Pizza.

Despite its age, still fresh and has has tannins left. Fantastic structure and body.
