Really interesting wine. First impressions are that it’s heavy and earthy; but with time gives way to floral and bright fruit notes. @garagiste purchase - glad I have a few more bottles to explore.

Youthful. Medium to full. Nice balance with good tannins.

Aged into a round profile. Spicy. Tobacco. Leather. Tannins still provide a nice kick.

Aging very well! Tobacco, cigar box, leather, cedar, BlackBerry, and plum. Still has several more years ahead of it. Tannins are still prominent. Very rustic old world style wine.

Big & brooding, hardly flashy. Meaty & savory with generously ripe fruits that don't verge into jam. Full-bodied but smartly balanced.

This is consistently quite tasty and worked really well with lamb sausage dishes.

Just coming into its peak drinking window. A big serious wine. Black and blue fruits with charcoal, and cigar box. Very good! This still has 3 to 5 years probably in its peak drinking window.

I may have gotten the vintage wrong but what a beautiful Portuguese surprise-started off like a lighter hybrid beast of Ribero & Rioja. Morphs into its own creature, red fruits & plenty of depth, I taste barrel aging ( it may have been a 2010). All out balance. Impressive, 32$.
