    May 2, 2017 - Ripe black and dark red fruit on the nose when the cork was pulled. The palate matched the nose as far as the fruit, with blackberry, purple plum, and some raspberry, plus a little dried oak leaf and a pinch of pepper. A little on the bold side with a little alcohol heat on both the entry and finish.

    Day 2 - the alcohol heat has died down, and cocoa powder has come into the blend. Very nice! If the acidity were a little lower it would score higher. Right now, it's seems just a bit tart for such a New World flavor profile.

    December 30, 2016 - Great QPR but my 92 is absolute, not $$ relative. Big juice balanced with full minerality: full of graphite, crushed stone, some star anise and warm leather. Wine is drinking great here, but needs about 20 minutes to really open.

  • Nyccablover Does not like this wine:

    December 24, 2016 - PnP - consumed late on a big consumption day - so no detailed notes, but impression similar to previous. Not really a fan of this wine, a bit too over extracted and gloppy, heavy dark sweet tannins and chocolate - not subtle at all.

    October 19, 2016 - Some wines just need time... and this one is ready to drink now. Very smooth tannins, nice aromas of fresh barnyard and dark fruit, long finish of dark berries with strong hints of coffee and chocolate... excellent.
