Intense florals and fig on the nose. Medium bodied that translations to a light juicy body. 75% chocolate and anise upfront. Mid palate is surprisingly fruity though, getting some bright nectarine and tart red apple notes. Finally finishes with a little bit of heat, like mild fresh wasabi. It’s a nice linear wine with clean and defined layers.

Really nice choice with beef tenderloin. Medium tannins, spice, currant. Ready to drink now.

Very special wine. Not only is it the best but the memories are off the chart. Deep, with some smoke, chocolate and earth.

Light and grassy. Pairs poorly with salt. Licorice vibe.

Nicely balanced, medium to full bodied with well rounded tannins. Cool on the nose with deep blackberry, black licorice and cassis.

Pleasantly surprised! Very light full of flavor with a rich dark color. Hard to find at times but went great with my steak dinner.
