Took a sip and chuckled, “Napa Valley.” If you love that flavor profile you’ll enjoy this wine.

Powerful. Intense blackberry and dark fruit. Licorice. Inky black in appearance and tastes the same when coating my mouth.

Dark as midnight and utterly pleasing.
Grippy tannins as you would expect from such a young wine, this has great potential.
Julien Fayard (winemaker) is somebody to watch!!!

Young but outstanding. Huge wine all around. Great mint on the nose. Very concentrated fruit with a loooong finish. Will wait a few years before my next bottle. Very good value.

Let sit about an hour and it will be much better. Big, thick tannins with dark fruit. Swirl a big mouthful to appreciate. Smooth for a 15% alcohol

Bottle 5 & 6.
Nice wine especially with discount, but just doesn't have that IT factor,
