One dusty note throughout. No discernible fruit. Sour tannins on the finish. Maybe there was an issue with this bottle, since my experience was so off of the other reviews.

Delicious fruit. Perfectly balanced. This is by far our favorite wine. Great pick for our 25th anniversary!

Pretty good wine. This crappy Corkz app crashes every time I enter a lengthy review so that's all I have to say

Excellent, full bodied, complex. Tight at first - definitely decant. Smoke and black cherry on the nose. Served with smoky bbq which heightened the acidity.

Ruby red with a strong stoney, grainy taste. Ate with beef and had a great pairing with strong reach finish.
