Dark purple color with flower perfume, leather and plums on the nose. Very tannic right out of the bottle. Let it breathe for an hour and it’s much more balanced. Wonderful Bordeaux mouth feel with long finish. Medium bodied right bank blend. 4 stars for value - it’s a keeper.

The first average bottle we've had this trip. I'm going back to South African wines from here on out

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing....and wine is the best device to overdo..moderation is for cowards...so...with this in mind we opened and decanted this guy...first impressions.. dark ruby color displays the youth of this guy.. beautiful nose...raspberry and plum baking spice and vanilla...on the palate...plum and blackberries..the baking spice from earlier...dust and just a kiss of oak. Grippy tannins and med plus finish. I am sure this guy while tasty and nice now will only be improved by a dozen years of aging...something to mellow out the tannin structure that at this point kinda messes with this guys flow.

Wow. Opened nicely. Worked well with ribs and would be great with steak or even grilled chicken. Really nice and dry and smooth.
