I thought this was quite enjoyable. Nice depth of fruit, with some tart and nuance. Had a refreshing note.

Ok, I'll be the contrarian on this one. Feel like I'm drinking Gattinara from a cold vintage, or Snapple peach iced tea made with unripe peaches. I don't know if there is enough fruit to last the amount of time needed to ease the tannins. I might be wrong but don't know that I would want to place a wager on it blossoming into something

Need to hold. A while. Really great after having been open and aired out a while, but this wine is in it for the long haul. 11.9% abv, whaaaat?

PnP. Very drinkable already. Spice, funk, and a melange of aromas in the nose. Velvety tannins and lively in the mid-palette. This is a thinking man’s weekday sipper. Will check back in with this in a couple days.

Deep purple color. Mostly blue fruit on palate. It's good but not really my jam. Interesting intellectually to get these aromatics and depth of flavor at 11.9% for sure. Left it open for multiple days.

Black pepper, black tea, sugar plum. So good. Light alcohol, medium acid but full body.

Fruity in the beginning and smoothes out to a lighter fruit forward glass. Tannins are non distinct and light.

Not for the faint of heart, tannic and deep, but surprisingly drinkable at 11.9% abv, this is an old style petite sirah from centenarian vines. Makes me feel young! Eat your heart out, Paul Draper, and kudos once again to Hardy and co.
