Really enjoy this. Lip smacking baked raspberry. Blackberry leaf. Smoke. Mineral-flint. Hint of roses. Medium bodied. Good acidity. Good texture. With time, might become a baby Cote Rotie without the spice.

Beautiful. Rustic, but generous. Very strong floral component with warm spices and licorice. Supple and elegant on the palate with a sneaky finish. All class.

Rustic and warm. Improves considerably with air. But I suspect I’d prefer this in a cooler vintage.

Dark berry fruit, some herbaceousness. Medium style with some nice acid and alcohol heat on the back end. Cedar, sawdust, light chocolate. Some oak presence.

I discovered this wine while dining at Del Posto. Traces of pepper with a buttery flow had go four bottle deep between the three of us, so yeah I dig this wine!

Great sample of this kind. Serious style, well balanced in alcohol, acidity, structure. Perfect with grilled meats

Good balance even at 14.5%. Drink with meat.

Luscious, rich, succulent. Top notch wine for winter, bbq, or a random Thursday.

Wonderfully complex. Dried cherry, black cherry, and fig join leather, tea, and animale flavors. Not at all overripe. Wonderfully balanced.

Great Fall/Winter wine, dark brooding, ripe cherry, earthy, spicy, floral. Nice tannins, good acidity, full bodied. Drink it with strong cheese, wild game, Braised shank or on its own at the end of the day.
