What a delicious wine! And the self labeled tasting notes were spot on. Cherry, cola, sarsaparilla, cocoa, salted umeboshi plum(?) Sure. Why not? Old, dry farmed vines in Mendocino.

A juicy people pleaser on its own or look to the label for suggestions with lamb burgers, or Korean BBQ.

Blood-ruby, undiluted tenor from rim to rim. Blackberry-cran with a smoky coat, violets, raspberry reduction, wild nettle, suede, rose petal, dried cherry, applewood, and gingerly ginger, spare cedar, finest snuff, cherry pit and damp clove spiced nose. All with a slight memory of campfire. Black plum, cedar, violet, dried, sour cherry, dark leather, peppercorn, dried cranberry and red currant, cinnamon apple, fine, grippy tannins that integrate into the whole with a pleasing sense of herbs and bitters, sage and lavender. Did not expect this complexity from carignan, and floral notes that evoke like Nebbiolo. Class. .

Crunchy blue and red fruits w herbal undertones. Vibrant and alive on the palette. Enjoying alone but this wine begs for food.
