Despite being five years old this drinks very young and fresh. Floral, silky texture, medium acidity and Rick without being heavy. Good acidity- a wonderful wine for food

This wine is all about high alcohol. Raisins on the nose, very syrah-like on the palate, but alcohol overpowers this wine. Have as a cocktail, but not great with food.

Big and plump with cherry and spice. Alcohol is prominent, but not obtrusive.

The nose is beyond intriguing. Imagine sticking your face in a leather bag full of sour black cherries, chocolate shavings, and wild green foliage. Raisin-ey on the palate, with great complexity. Is it minty, or more of a tarragon? Not sure...but give me more! It gets a touch sour towards the finish...maybe it needs another few years to soften up.
