Berries and leather on the nose. Smooth and light mouthfeel with good acid and lower than expected tannin.

What a tantalizingly delightful cacophony of flavors bundled into every sip. Pairs beautifully with a peanut butter and jelly tortilla roll.

It grew on me. Pairs well with olives. Initially it was buttery on the finish but that faded quickly. Middle of the road.

2013 vintage. Notes of dark cherry and oak. Smooth but bold taste.

A bit dry, but once it opens up it's great. Cherry, fruity.

Big red. Long finishing dry notes. Slight bitterness. Would probably be best with lamb or something earthy like mushrooms and meat.
