Sunday Funday 1: Dark, opaque brick red. Clear. Moderate plus intensity in the color, compact rim, and no sediment. Wine breathed in bottle for 3 hrs. Very interesting nose, never would have guessed a Bordeaux Blend. Starts off with chocolate filled with alcohol. Lots of black cherries, vanilla, baking spices and dried fruit. A little savory on the palate and drying. A tad sweet too. Moderate body with moderate tannins (6/10). Texture is kind of like sand paper. Long finish. Nose was a little of putting for me. Would love to try this with more air time.
The wine was dark ruby in colour and threw some sediment. It offered dark fruit, chocolate, cedar, leather, tobacco, spices, cinnamon and vegetal notes on the very cedary nose. On the palate the wine showed sweet dark fruit, black currant, plum, chocolate, cedar, tobacco and spices, with medium to medium-plus acidity, medium-plus tannin, moderate heat from the alcohol and good length. The concentrated, full-bodied wine was reasonably balanced and drank better than the bottle I had about four years ago. Paired well with steak. Drink now through 2020.
