Perfect cool Sunday evening wine. big on the sour cherries and a whiff of violet. A lot of earth to this but also a note of licorice. And blueberry jam. Actually I now want to jelly this wine and put it on Sunday morning pancakes. But for now I’ll drink it Sunday night.

Wood, spice, smoky mushrooms. Med+ acid. Vanilla that clearly says barrique without screaming it. Red fruit. Firm tannins.

Drank 9/3/18. Great pairing with Rigatoni Bolognese, although this seems like it would pair with a wide mix of foods

Nose of red and black cherries, mixed with some plum and cocoa notes. Palate of juicy red cherry, raspberry. Some leather and cocoa powder. Excellent balance with medium, well integrated tannins. Juicy red fruits on the finish that lasts 30 seconds or so.

3/22/8/5/3 +50= 91 pts.

Had 3 bottles of 2014. Might throw out 2 of them. No depth, no structure. Life’s too short to drink this wine

Not bad. Not a great wine, but for $19, a good value. Some off flavors, but the wine has a nice fruitiness and goes well with pizza.

Took a minute to open up, not as robust as expected given the the reviews of a friend.

Hint of fruitiness and lightness, but smooth, round finish.
