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.

Meh. I was expecting more. This wine is very schizophrenic to my palate. The Petit Verdot really serves more as a spoiler than a good basis for the overall structure and character of the wine overall.
