Currently in its sweet spot! This wine drank perfectly- very balanced, good acid and very tasty. Killer QPR and a wine that exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend. I wish I had more. Dark fruits, earth, little licorice and some smoke. Drank with italian style stuffed peppers- ground turkey. Drank well with and without food.
consistent tn's, served at cellar temperature. My last bottle of this vintage and I'm sad to see it go. While it has lost some of the freshness it once had, it makes up for it with vigor and purity of fruit. 78% Old Vine Carignan with some Petite Sirah and Mourvedre tossed in, this is a superb wine value that simply begs for food. A genuine success. Drink thru 2014, 14,2% abv, score: B+/A-
Cloudy with some sediment. Red fruit and earthiness on the nose. Good cherry and other red fruit flavors with some leather. Currently drinking better than the 06 vintage of the same wine. Drank well over a 3-4 day period.
