Wild/rustic boysenberry, smoke, spice, minerality, charcoal, garrigue, menthol, soft tannins and balancing acid. Kermit Lynch does it again, always finds a prime example. Steak a little big for it, but working.

Ripe black and red berries. Plum, slight touch of spices, mushroomy rustic forest floor. 80% Malbec and the rest Merlot.

A bit thin, but pretty nice all around. Dried fruit, but without sweetness. Some dry palate from the Merlot

Pleasant enough, lightly tannic, and easy drinking. Slight hay-ish taste but got over it quickly.

Personally not my favorite. Can’t tell if mine was corked or it’s just funky wine but had almost a medicinal aroma to it. Get some barnyard and wood with some blue fruit underneath on the nose. Medium tannin with some oak. Not nearly as assertive on the palate as the nose
