11yr Wedding Anniversary! Wine needed a decant but we didn’t have time. Dark purple color. Great nose of cedar, dark cherries, and rustic elements. Was surprised by the olives and meats on the palate. Was very CDP like. Not sure if it’s in a weird spot, an off bottle, or meant to be that type of blend. Wasn’t bad, but not my style. Medium depth and finish.

Bold and the beautiful. Very young and needed more time to decant but good fruit not overly tannic and well balanced

Lovely!!!! Beautiful fruit forward bouquet with a complex palate. After a bit of decanting I noticed a very elegant dry finish ! Loved it.
