Wish I had better notes. Ethereal, pure, lifted and elegant tannins. Lovely sweet spice notes that shinned through like ceylon and balsam. More pinot-esque style of Grenache.

Bought this on a lark because I was intrigued by the only 10 barrels produced marketing. When I first opened it up it was just too hot and tannic and needed to breath. Thanks to a combination of lots of cooking and a good book I actually forgot about drinking it steadily and as such left it open for over an hour. The wine I came back to was a delicious, fruity, earthy, and well-balanced wine. The long long exposure I had left it in the glass and bottle really let it develop into something juicier with a better flavor profile. Baked ripe fruit, bright acidity, dark flavors of Cassis and Black Berry.
