This wine was a bit disjointed. Some decent fruit and tannins but it lacked a harmonious overarching theme. Paired fairly well with a steak.

28 months in new and used oak. Inky and dark, plush and mouth filling. Well made.

Ugly Petit Verdot dominating this tannic blend. Black, candied berry demands some attention amidst grimy, heavily extracted dryness.

Dry, earthy, dark fruit. Good woodsy foresty nose. Complex. Really good value.

It’s okay. Mellow, almost too mellow. Not worth $20 per bottle.

Strong dark fruit flavors. Dry, punchy. Notes of chocolate @Farrar Langlois you should try this one

Smooth and full bodied. Fruity but too much so.
