Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Dark purple color, high proportion of Cab Sauv. Aromas of black fruit and spice. Palate displays blackberries, firm tannins, with some oak and earthy notes on a medium finish ending with a bit of mineral notes. Drink now.

This could use a heavy decant. Great tannins, tobacco, soy sauce, slate. I like this more the more it opens up. Some blackberry, maybe a note of plum.

A nice melody of mixed red and dark cherries, some raspberry. Followed by an earthy and slightly acidic backbone. There are hints of tobacco. Medium tannin. Very good.

On the nose, black fruit and earthy. On the palate, acidic, high tannin, black fruit finish.

Shows great promise but young and needs a decent now. BlackBerry, plum, cedar, leather, and tobacco. Tannins are still very youthful and prominent.
