Potpourri, dried berries, light pepper spice, leathery, smooth yet spicy finish.

A great year so not a surprise that this wine is still great. Well balanced, with spice and fruit as well as the tanins to support it.

A wine that has changed since the last bottle I opened. It still has good fruit, just less tanins. Overall an excellent wine.

Solid red, great flavor, decent mouthfeel, needs a bit more tim for tannins to develop.

Trying this app for the first time! Crazy gold colour and secondary aged notes to go with it, but still razor-like slivers of acidity. Rubber, lanolin, parchment, sheepy. Sem heavy? Tons of character for a sub-$20 bottle.

As James Suckling predicted, come back to it in 2017 - well, it is 2018 and this one is about as good as it will get. Mushroom, loamy soil, soy sauce, leather, gravel dust, and decaying flowers, red plum, cooked down cranberries, cocoa powder, and kalamata olive all on the nose. The color is brick red with an orange rim, a medium body, and elegant tannin, but bright acidity. Blackberries, cranberry, pepper, delicious red apple skin, and a smooth finish. Good by itself, but better for food - duck breast or fillet mignon.

Had this wine again. Didn't get any better. Dark purple color. Aromas of red fruit and spice. Palate displays tart fruit, cherries and berries, biting tannins, combined with earthy notes on the long finish. Drink up as good as it gets.
