We love this stuff. So consistent. Such a great value. Deep, rich and plush. So opulent. Sweet black fruits, buttressed by formidable tannins. Excellent length on the finish. Loving this.

This was a complex jammy, woodsy and almost peppery blend. Was even better decanted for an hour. Nice finish without being tart.

Cassis black currant berry fruit with a good hand of fresh earth and tobacco spice nice complexity. Nice richness on the palate with lots of sweet tobacco spice and nice freshness big but still balanced. Excellent +
