First night was so so. Second night was better. Third night and this wine started to shine.

2nd taste. Cocoa, vanilla, coffee, blackberry, and licorice on the nose. On the palate, this full bodied, well balanced wine brings a mouthful of rich dark chocolate with cherry and slight tobacco/smoke undertones. Truly must decant this wine to get flavors to evolve. Medium long finish with medium tannins. Love Chocolate you will love this wine but other flavors are reached on the nose and not the palate. l like this wine with food or as a sipper. Very good value at 14.99 for such a smooth rich wine.

Always a nice bottle from a solid producer especially for the price point.

Big jammy, grapey juice with hints of chocolate and mocha. Not my cup of tea. I need more structure, less ripeness, and some acid. Northern Rhône is my style and this is the antithesis of that.

Unbalanced and like alcoholic grape jelly. They've managed to strip all Syrah character from this wine. For me, undrinkable.
