Ripe, earthy, long finish. 15.5% abv! Somehow not feeling the heat.

Pleasantly surprised. Red berries and violet on the nose. Plum and dark cherry. Gripping acidity with smooth tannins at end. Hot at 15.5%! Great deal at 24$, perfect with Loafers pizza.

Modern style, but nice wine. Drinks like an excellent Napa cab body-wise and acidity, tannin. When paired with steak this was in its element, but anything less would be overpowered.

Thought this was really nice and got even better after a few hours. Both dark fruit - cherry and plum - and bright - strawberry and raspberry.
