First bottle of The Paring. Great aroma, Rich color, big fruity taste. Kim's big brown knife wielding beaver in the background. That's why I'm scared all the time !!

Deep purple in color, strong tannins. Definitely needs to open up. Finishes with mulberry and subtle spice.

From this pedigree of Screaming Eagle...the owners have something really nice with this Rhone style blend.

Getting better with each bottle. More complexity and depth of flavor, deep color, dark berries, lightly hinting of mint on the finish, very interesting and tasty.

Tight, very tannic, needs to decant. Afterwards, deep purple color, spicy and dry
