Pale garnet with orange rim. Volcanic fairy dust presents quickly on nose, then dehydrated plum, Cointreau, brown sugar, Worschestershire, nettle, clove, black olive, campfire ash. Palate brings med+/high- acid, high tannin, med+ alc, flavors of tart red cherry, black olive, brown spice, fairy dust minerality, cigar paper, American Spirits. Long finish, improving with air and thank you *tres much*

A mostly #Nerello #Mascalese from #Sicily. Lovely complexity, red & black fruit, dried herbs, exotic & continuously evolving in my glass. Delicious.

Thin and tannic. Thought Nebbiolo or cool vintage Burgundy when tasted blind. Tasted about a decade older too

Lacking the acid I expected but beautiful layered aromas.

Dried lavender and rosemary. Bright red fruit, excellent acidity and finish. Like hanging out in wild herb fields.

Dried fruit, rustic, firm, light body. Nice with food.
