Right now its so young and immature that Having it as a desert wine is probably ok but... me thinks this wine in 5 -10 yrs is gonna bring down the house.

Salty chocolate cherries on the nose with palette notes of blueberry, crushed gravel and morel mushroom. The finish is smokey and tinged with raspberries. A beautiful wine.

A great order when you dont know what else to get. Always rock solid, goes with everything, gobs of fruit but enough tannin to hold up to any dish.

2010. Complex aromas and flavors. Really reminiscent of French blends. Not sure there isn’t a bit of brett adding some funk to those complex aromas...
