Dark and moody...but wants to be your pal. Fruits that are almost stewed with a depth that just shouldn't be at this price point. It's super volatile (like all their wines) and turns into a cherry Chapstick thing on the nose, this sounds bad but just isn't. Damn I want this on my list. Also there's fun art on the bottle, so that's a plus.

Like a soft napa. Round body. Plush, jammy notes. Very pretty.

Smells like smoke and cigar. Faint green pepper taste with butter at the end. This has been my favorite so far.
