Dark scarlet to the rims, almost opaque. Masculine, meaty nose. Notes of smoked meats, tart raspberries, herbs, wet soil, blueberries and some white pepper. Big and rich in the mouth. Youthful and plummy. Has some heat. Tannins mostly resolved. Puckering acidity and structure kinda overwhelms the fruit.

Opened two bottles, both were in great shape. Manageable Brett, slight bottle variation, one seemed to be more concentrated than the other. Fun stuff, corks were in great shape. These aren’t getting better.

Reddish amber, clear, bright and mostly translucent. Great nose with notes of cranberry, dried herbs, plum, white pepper and a little smoke. In the mouth this is instantly open for business. Silky and smooth. Lovely fruit, balanced with wonderful structure and energy. Long lasting finish. This wine continues to perform, with no sign of decline on the horizon.

Really starting to enter a great drinking window. Raspberry, herbs, spice, a touch of oak. This has the fruit and structure to age gracefully for a long time.

Herbal and still rather tannic and youthful. Leather, mushroom, tobacco, thyme, rosemary, dusted plum. Some redder tones emerge from the black fruit core - strawberry even. A pleasant rusty patina with some gentle, welcome bitterness on the finish.

Fresh, magenta flavor with vibrant acidic backbone. Ginger, plum, pepper, thyme, garrigue.
