Very nice. 45+ minute decant. Dark purple color. Massive cow shit and earthy nose. Wine shows the same on the palate. While I really like this, it was a bit much. Could be more refined. Did have some deep cherry fruit, which gave it some American characteristics. Very long finish. Probably better wines at a lower price point as it lacked finesse.

Dense wine that is a mouthful when you suck it down, well we tried to sip it but it went fast. Blackberries some floral notes , spice and that earthy Bordeaux flavor. Get involved!

Excellent wine. Good minerality and notes of cedar and cranberry. It has a finish that is super long and pleasant. Love it.
