Powerful blend. Deliciously balanced and layers of complex fruit tones. Nicely integrated at eight years of age.

Plum, mushrooms, and rose hips, head up a nice flavor profile for a regularly underrated wine. Almost a milk chocolate lactic mouthfeel with Tannins made of silk and the sweetest kiss of acid. Drinking solo but a beautiful food wine. Better than other wines of its ilk at half the price.

Good backbone and tannins. Fairly resolved but could use a little more time. Oak is present but in background (good). Sweet on palate with a little "wild berry" (raspberry/blueberry blend).

Quarantine treat! Wasn’t expecting this to be as good as it is.

Full force.

Resolved tannins and still mouth coating, fresh ripe red berries. Touch of acidity, little sense of oak, perfectly in balance.

No idea when or where I got it but man I want more.

Great wine. Long finish. Very complex and beautiful nose. It is with grilled lamb chops

Bold red blend with tannins and bold fruit (currant) flavors. Tasty finish.
