Great if you want big flavor with lower tannin. Smoke and sour cherry on the nose, ripe fruits on their way to jam, flavors of strawberries, plums and cherries that deliver then roll out for a satisfyingly dry finish that gives you a honorable mention in the tannin arena. High in alcohol at 15.9 but manages to hit your palette smoothly with wood and fruit, complexity and drinkability, awesome overall, highly recommend for pinot noir lovers looking to go bolder or cabernet scarey cats looking to get brave!

You really need to let this wine breath. It tasted much better the next day. I thought Dave & Joel did a bad job on this one, but I was wrong.

Ripe at first, before dark, warm pepper dominates the palate with some oak and wood and earth.

Pushing 15.6 abv, the concentration and intensity along with fruit the alcohol is in balance,fine grained grippy tannins lead to savory finish with heat showing up

Huge, robust Grenache from southern France. Graphite, ripe plum, cola, spice, plenty of tannins. Not a lot of soul.
