I call this wine an american muscle car made in France, big black fruit, a lot of alcohol...Just what I need for Chicago winter:). It tastes much better after it's been decanted for a while.

Another way, way, way over-the-top fruit bomb from our dear friends at Orin Swift. A dark, brooding, black wine with a big chocolate nose and huge sweet fruit with tons and tons of alcohol and a spicy finish. The fruit character is like a very ripe Garnacha from Spain.

Bold fruit, chocolate, leather, alcohol. I at first thought it had some brightness to it, but if it's there, it's overpowered. Intense. 2012.

What a trio!!!! Va Piano Syrah and Cabernet and Orin Swift D66 The Va Piano Syrah smooth and so wonderful. The Cabernet is strong and so great. The D66 is simply over the top after trio

100% Grenache all french grapes
Maple syrup and raisins nose. Brown sugar?
Drinkable alone. Would need to think of good food pair.
