Superb. Yet, still with a long life ahead.
Will open the next bottle in a couple of years.

Enjoyed with tri-tip. Still alive. Some browning color very visible. This baby has already integrated tannins and very elegant. Quite enjoyable.

Very good bottle. Not over extracted. Lighter color than any grenache I've had. A different type of granache and was very enjoyable.

PnP. Opened to get the wyf out of her funky space after a not so good job interview.

After initial funk blew off, this was a very modern style burg. A bit more extracted, dark red with noticeable tannins and acid. Good fruit, spices. Enjoyable.

Such a hot mess. PnP one night but still tastes the same the following night. Big and jammy with just alcohol most prominent on the nose. Maybe my wife and I don't gravitate towards these type of wines anymore. No score given and will not seek out anymore of these.

Disappointed in this bottle. Tart taste and did not come together... Maybe we should have aerated first instead of PnP
