Fresh, plenty of spice/black pepper, dried currants and dark raspberry. Liked this a lot and had forgotten how good this wine is.

Happy Hallo-wine! Violets, thyme, and a surprising rush of dense, high toned blackberry and plum, followed by a wave of gauzy tannins. Somehow elegant and rustic at the same time, though could use just a smidge more time to come together. Savory and warming on a cold October night. Update: confirmed, was more integrated after a day of air

Lives up to the hype- very fresh and lively black and blue fruit with menthol, stem, spice. Doesn’t need time to enjoy but I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes over the next 5.

Plump fruit, slight carbonic, punchy and fresh tannin, adds a textural crunch almost. Love this wine, muddled blackberry, cracked pepper, warm stones, menthol on the nose. Palate is more blackberry and crispy black cherry, black olive, beef, and loads of stoney mineral character.

Dark red with complex fruit and floral scents. On the palate raspberry and blueberry flavors with pepper spice jolt. Fresh tannins, great balance with acidity on lingering finish ending with a mineral pop. Tastes well now. Tasting Sample.
