  • -- popped and poured --
    -- tasted non-blind over a couple hours --

    Similar to previous bottle. Stemmy/peppery spice on the dark-fruited Nose. On the palate, this is purple-fruited with adequate acidity; grapey; a bit savory. Very good.

  • -- popped and poured --
    -- tasted non-blind over a few hours --

    NOSE: French toast; slight stemmy/white pepper note; a bit tart: savory red berries; medium to medium+ expressiveness; high-toned.

    BODY: garnet color of medium to medium-deep depth; clear; medium bodied.

    TASTE: grapefruit; savory; very good and very N. Rhone-esque; slightly herby; good acidity; what little tannin exists is very fine and just a touch drying --- doesn’t provide much grip; 12.5% alc. is not noticeable; floral; light and slightly tart red/purple fruit – plum & red currant; not even close to over-concentrated or over-extracted, rather, this comes across as quite fresh; has that St. Joseph green pepper savoriness to it; after a few hours: a slightly tart hint of citrus (Ruby Red grapefruit) persists; medium-light concentration of fruit; slightly bitter/herbal; red/purple fruit. Most of the flavor is on the front palate; nicely balanced; drink in the near term. Excellent value play.

    B: 50, 5, 12, 16, 7 = 90

  • - Purple color with medium forming legs and aromas of strawberry jam, raspberry, cloves and mushroom. It's balanced and has flavours of black currant, cherry, raisin and oak with a light/medium body. Linear texture with a medium finish - Very fruit driven, easy to drink wine.
