You could say forest floor and mushroom but really it was musty, meaty and really kind of like a dirty diaper. Some black pepper, green olive, game, wet dog. Very similar to the last bottle two years ago. Very interesting wine that would probably pair well with a gamey meal. The wine is smooth and body is medium/full.
Medium-light red color, vivid. Herbal nose, of thyme, steamed green beans, with a bit of plum pudding's caramel and raisins, and cocoa powder a decent bit of oak ?). On arrival, steady fine-grained tannin and lifted acidity. In the mouth, mint-menthol right away, then lean plum and cherry, a burst of cinnamon and black pepper in the finish. An unfamiliar style to me, but went nice with turkey-parm meatballs in basil-tomatoes. Thanks to the Wrights.
