Ripe raspberry, dramatic spice, dynamic acidity somehow, herbaceous, forest floor, soothing tannin. A little robust and all over the place but quite complex also.

Amazing. Half bottle. Incense, baking spice, wild fruit, stoney minerality, balanced acidity, medium body and light color. Beautiful! Thanks Doug!

I usually don’t drink wines this big. But it was a warm day and I cooked a NY steak so wanted something substantial. It didn’t disappoint. Dark fruit, a little bit sweet and some spice. Perfect for the day and meat. What I appreciated was the touch of acidity it delivered so you still want the next sip. It’s got its place in the firmament.

Revisiting after a year or so. The hot year comes thru with olives, spice, and earth. Rough, but balances out a bit the next night.

From a restaurant list, decanted and poured. Bright color, light in the glass. Subtle nose with notes of rhubarb, herbs, some pepper and cherry. Ok in the mouth. Not very complex. Decent drink.
