Straightforward, modern style CDP. Quite warm, syrupy, and sweet, flashy and open. This did calm down a bit with air. Not really my style, but it did have a nice purity to the fruit profile, and I appreciated the cleanliness / Brett free with no obtrusive oak character. If these wines are your thing, you’ll love this.

Lots of fruit. A little heat. Worked well with turkey dinner.

Concentrated fruit up front.m, jammy black currant. Some spice too. Very nice but not spectacular.

Fresh fruity notes, mostly blackberry. Some coffee and bay leaf notes develop after 20-30 minutes. Low tannins, medium acidity, slightly smoky on the palate. Lighter, more traditional in terms of wood and body. Unripe cherry notes on the finish. Delicious!

Lingering jammy finish, smooth, juicy, red fruit, high alcohol, reminds me of edmunds St. John rocks and gravel but on steroids.

Good freshness to blend of spicey cherry and other deep flavors!
