45 min decant (some cloudy sediment). A bewitching dark ruby red color. On the nose: red fruit, dusty soil, floral, metallic, and cocoa. Taste: creamy, juicy, rich full body wine with dark fruit, leather, minerals, oak, mocha, and a herbal black pepper semi dry long finish. YUM!

Double decant (decent chunky sediment). A staggering dark ruby red color. On the nose: Red fruit, eucalyptus, floral, spicy licorice. Taste: black fruit, leather, crushed rock with a spicy minerally finish that goes long...good structure and some lovely acidity.

Friday night...time for some wings and a cab...perfect. Double decanted (plenty of chunky sediment). A sublime still dark ruby red color. On the nose: red fruit, floral, currants, tobacco. Taste: beautiful silky mouthfeel with dark cherry, red plum, spice, some chocolate, vanilla. Nice medium finish...no reason to wait, enjoy em if you got em.

Black berry, blueberry and black cherry. A bunch of cocoa and coffee with a hint herbs. Lovely. Big but had finesse

Ruby color. Sweat sock, celery seed and cheese nose. Licorice and bitter acidic flavor. Long finish of tannins with a slight bitterness.
