Let it decant a little. Wonderful. Lots of flavor but not strong. Very smooth. A little sweetness at the end. Had with steak and paired well.

Odd cooked aromas, like a good Bordeaux that has been heated. Disappointing

Interesting off the nose is expected berries. Dark berry and hint of pepper on the palate. There is a Cab finish on the palate as 2 of the 5 grapes in the blend are Cab Sauvignon and Cab Franc. Very nice.

Nice, a bit high on the acid, but good dark fruit.

2012 vintage. Aged well from last year, smoothed out. Black currant on nose. Tart cherry. Pairing well with fresh sage.

Deliciously smooth blend. Soft tannins on the front with a full flavor finish.
