See prior notes from 2017. Now even more expressive with smoky hints, more cola notes and even a bit of baking spice and cardamom. Really good right now

GSM blend was very enjoyable. Easy drinking and not overly hot or tannic.

Deep red color, nose of crushed rocks, light baking spice and pencil shavings. Medium to dark fruit, but tannic and little hot on the alcohol. We should've decanted and waited to drink as the wine opened in the glass and softened. I think I would wait another couple of years to try again

Had to open a bottle of this just to see how it was. Dark fruits and 45 second finish were my favorite parts. Nose was expressive of earthy hints, light baking spices and blackberry and plum. medium to high tannins will settle over the next few years and make this wine even better

Great nose of dark fruits and earthy tones. Dark purple in color and was medium to full bodied wine, and got better in the decanter over the 90 minutes it was open. Will be a beast in a couple of years, as the tannins should settle down and the finish may get closer to 60 seconds

Such a refreshing wine and lack of oak allows us to get it really cold. Was really nice with cod and wild rice

Youthful Bordeaux wine with a lot more fruit than i expected. Nose was there but nope over the top. Medium fruits and cassis come through, with herbaceous and floral notes. 20 seconds of finish but may grow longer with age. Food friendly and very easy drinking

See prior notes. Well the fruit was a little less muted, the finish last longer and the overall structure of the wine shows through. I think it is just off the peak of its drinking. So enjoy

Not as high as I thought as something must have been off. Minimal fruit overall, and the nose seemed muted. Finish was decent but could not overcome other issues

Initial try of this wine for us. Cocoa, dark fruits, light smoke and a little cedar. Minimal sediment. Deep dark red color. 30-45 second finish that was very satisfying, and this will get better

Expected a lot more from this Atlas Peak wine. Tons of dark fruit, but overall underwhelmed compared to other vintages.
