    March 14, 2015 - Red Blends on a Saturday afternoon (Loretta Paganini School of Cooking): This has a great nose. Complex and earthy. Raspberries, Chambord, spice and an earthy notes. Complex. Medium bodied. Still young but really drinking well now. A few more years to go from peak but no harm checking in now. Lots of red fruit with a nice depth. Very food friendly.

    March 7, 2015 - More or less a pop and pour. Blueberry, raspberry, Grenache, lavender and sour cherry on the nose. Got some more Grenache, blueberry, raspberry and sour cherry on the palate. Ended with a nice long finish.

    February 13, 2015 - Wow, this wine is outstanding. On the five point scale way below expectations/below expectations/as expected/above expectations/way above expectations, this got a 5. Three birds has been a nice wine in the past and perfectly enjoyable, but this was great due to complexity, smoothness, approachability and an extremely long finish that I could taste well after a minute. You know that taste/feeling in your mouth that you get when you have swallowed a drink of a wine, you sit back and relax and you realize that the flavor is still there on your tongue to enjoy, AND it's not because it's a TBA with 325 gms RS. Well, this had it. Popped and poured. Red and black fruit. Spice but smooth mouth feel.

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of talc, lacquer, herbs and berries. Flavors of berries, raspberries and cherries. Medium to tangy acidity, medium to firm tannin, full bodied. Drink now with air or continue to hold.
