Well balanced for the high alcohol, very bright wine that will best be consumed young with some steak and chimichurri sauce off the grill

Deep cherry flavor. Robust with good aftertaste.

Based on the other reviews I was expecting a hot wine, not the case a year later. Alcohol was tamed and balanced. Sweet, with hints of roses on the nose. Very balanced acidity and tannins. Lots of finesse showing black cherry, herbs and slight essence of cedar. Strong and long on the finish-spice and sage rounding out. Drink now!

Great wine. Tart red cherry, nice terroir. Refinement would have increased with a touch less alcohol presence.

Crazy hot nose and finish, but Beautiful mouth feel and mid palate fruit

Good. Light burn, tart cherry, then smooth round finish.
