Great initial taste and smell but gets even better as it opens up.

Loads off white and black pepper with a touch of jam. Funky American oak to add to the nose and add a layer to the palate. Takes a minute to open up.

Ripe raspberry and sour cherry, pepper and leather. A touch hot on the finish

Ripe raspberries, black and white pepper, smoke and a little towards the saddle leather side. Expressive palate, complex, fruit intermingling with smoked meat character, a little sweaty, powerful finish. Woulda pegged it for french. Want more.

A little to much pepperoni for me.

Grenache 62%,Mataro 23%, Shiraz 15%, Grenache dominates the aromas, little hot in the finish. Works for watching football.

Excellent balance, with plum and jam flavors. Full bodied and mellow. One of the best we've had in a long time at any price point.

Smoky cherry fruit on the nose. Palate is a little watery and soft.
