Very very dark black with Garnet hints of color. That tight black cherry and slightly under ripe black plums. After a couple hours it was very smooth but had a lot of grit, slightly out of balance but not a disappointment.

Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, espresso and sweet floral notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, strawberry and ripe black cherry with notes of cacao, vanilla and dried herbs. Fine rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy mineral notes. Tried twice!

Super smooth and balanced, one dimensional, but solid. In its prime now. Not a showstopper, but definitely dependable.

I have had this bottle for a while now... 2012 was a long time ago...

It’s ready. It’s likely the best this wine will get.

Smooth criminal.

Intense aroma, great wine. Dark fruit, very tannic. I enjoy this

Heavily oaked, no doubt, Vanilla extract and eucalyptus. Some of that sweaty sock Grenache but not so putrid. Wet dog???? Muddled fruit.

Almost impossible to label the correct bottling - I surrender!
Enjoyable. Manufactured. Open/knit. Over-oaked. Vanillin r us. But then, I’m easy to please.
