    Users Who Logged This Wine

    Color: Deeper garnet, with medium garnet edges

    Nose: Beautiful and deep medley here of black and red fruits, all fruit being on the darker realm. Baking spice and some vanilla from the halfway integrated toasted oak underlays all, and a new leather, pepper and fresh, wet garden earth round out the highly complex nose.

    Palate: Full bodied, with the ripe fruits from the nose, but is not overdone or over the top. Balance with the cassis, cardamon, black currant and black cherry mid-palate by the good acidity and firm, super-fine tannins. Savory, meaty and earthy mushrooms add another complexity, out to the now lightly toasted vanilla, spice and new leather finish. Outstanding: AwesomeWK, KeeperWK

    Color: Dark garnet core, darker garnet edges

    Nose: A gorgeous nose of dark and red fruits that exhibit great ripeness, but no delving into jammy. Pencil lead, loam and a touch of sweet oak abound here as well and some savory dried garden herbs.

    Palate: Just fantastic. That fruit medley is here as well, alongside good, fresher anise and cassis with coating, but fine tannins are here too, along with wonderful acidity showing that this wine has tons of aging to go, but is tremendously tasty already. It is astounding that this is their inaugural release and that I'm almost tempted to say that the wine is underpriced at $95!?
