Very obvious dill weed and coconut on the nose with a hint of tobacco leaves. Fruit condition is ripe, borderline overripe. Delicious

Ok-definitely for you "earthy" wine lovers. The nose opens with brazen notes of rich earth, smoke and leather. Those characters follow through on the palate, but dark, ripe fruit joins the party, and finishes with supple tannins and a hint of smoke. Lots to love, especially at this price point. I plan on stocking up!

Really really smooth and drinkable. Lots of French Oak notes. Don't notice the 14% alcohol. Mellow tannins. Still some red fruit notes

Parmesan cheese on the nose, some citrus, food balance between the sweetness and acidity.
