Smokey, meaty, with a touch of deep burnt orange and straw/grass. High notes of ripe raisin and dark fruit.

My kind of wine but I’m predictable. Medium ruby but starting to show age on the rim, day bright. Aromas of violets, GBP, un-spicy jalapeño, black plum, black berries, yet also tart red cherries and cranberries, forest floor, meat, leather. Sweet tobacco on the palate. Dry, medium plus acid, medium plus tannins, medium alcohol, medium minus body. I would personally drink this anytime but could be a perfect fall/winter pick with all of the complexity and warm tertiary aromas. Love.

2014...tart, "tingley" finish. Current, plum with a slightly sour bite.
