    December 8, 2017 - Enjoyed the bottle! On opening the tannins were to heavy for the wieght of the wine, but 2 hours decanted balanced everything out really well. I would not decant this to long or to much structure will fade. It’s not a mtn cab, but a blend, so it opens up pretty fast young. This is a great red for a home chef. Easy to find no cellar required decant when you start cooking and it’s ready to go.

    The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like black pepper.

Made in a crowd-pleasing style - very approachable with dark cherry fruit and broad, plush texture with a definite sweetness to the nose and palate, probably attributable to the higher alcohol.
