She’s a Beast ~ if it wasn’t for air and the lamb burger (w paprika & cinnamon, balsamic, feta, spinach & red onion) not sure a Machete could cut through it!

A great one from Orin Swift. Black tea surrounded by raspberry and blueberry fruit. Ripened and juicy. Tannin a plenty integrated. Just huge, well made new world wine. Not totally my style but undeniable in it's power.

One of my favorites from Orin. Big and brooding. Just 30 min of air makes a big difference. Nice heavy hitter on a cold winter evening.

A little overworked for me, but certainly has some concentration.
