Dark fruits, anise, pepper spice, earth. Little towards new world, but old world still dominates.

Simply delicious! Smooth, round, easy-going yet complex enough to satisfy a jaded palate.

Decanted 2 hours before we arrived at The Bird, this was the "arrival" wine to pair with hummus and olive oil. Acidity on this wine even after 2 hours was quite significant. But the hummus and olive oil and cheeses really paired quite well and allowed this wine to show a nice and slightly youthful dusty raspberry and a hint of mint. Olive and green pepper to the middle. The middle is darker, but still youthful and sweet. Finishes with a lot of restraint. 91 is a fair rating now, and I feel slight improvement is expected, but not much. Fair QPR here at 20 bucks retail.

Fresh cut stems and licorice on the nose. Cooked pears in wine, tobacco, notes of astringent green grapes. Would be interesting to see how it goes in a couple years.

Excellent when paired with turkey as part of a four-course prix-fixe Thanksgiving meal. Berries, currant, some spice.
