January 28, 2018 - My second bottle of 6 purchased. Thin and acidic like the previous bottle. Not sure what the appeal is for those rating this high. Nice aromas, but for me it ends there.
May 13, 2017 - Popped & poured with smoked beef brisket. Aromas of pepper, cherry and red berry fruit. Very bright and lively aromatics. Medium-bodied and nicely balanced, flavors of cherry, candied raspberry and spice. The red berry fruit and spice notes remain strong on the finish. Revisiting this a little later on in the evening, and it has developed dark fruit qualities but maintains the candied raspberry- just lovely. Drinking so very well right now.
January 12, 2017 - Beautiful wine. There might be a touch of VA in there, but sometimes I don't mind that. Candied but also deep, juicy, long finish.
September 1, 2015 - Delicious again. Might benefit from a few more years in the bottle.
November 20, 2014 - Delicious bottle again, held up for several nights in the fridge. Very succulent, drinks so easily while being quite complex.
May 31, 2014 - 4th Saturday Group brown bagger (M/M thelostverse): Notes of macerated strawberry, florals and dark fruit. Black raspberry and floral qualities on the palate. Finishes very well, as did the last bottle, with lingering dark fruit and herbal qualities. Double blind, Mrs. TLV liked it this time around, however Domino still did not...good...the last four bottles are mine.
May 21, 2014 - Inky crimson color with notes of raspberry, boysenberry and blue fruit, mint, rosemary and florals- very perfumed and florally- I love it. The palate follows the bouquet in terms of its fruit profile, with hints of oak spice on the finish. The finish lasts nearly a minute. Paul & Stef say this will be at its best over the next 5-15 years, but I don't know that any of mine will make it that long. It's delicious now.
May 21, 2014 - Opened by Allred at Anvil veranda opening. This sparked a lot of debate at the table as Allred and I loved it, whilst our wives did not. My daughter broke ranks with the women and tipped in the victory for the good guys. Extremely floral nose with red and black fruits. Wish I had some of this in my own cellar.
May 9, 2014 - Popped and poured. Aroma is earthy with red fruits of raspberry and strawberry. Has a dark raspberry taste, with a good amount of acidity.
April 22, 2014 - Really fun wine but with a serious side. Juicy, ripe, and flavorful but not over the top. The Mourvedre gives such great aromatics, the body is dark and rich but not syrupy at all. It's great to drink now but I bet it'll be better in 3-5 years. Great value again from Stefania.
