    July 5, 2021 - On blind tasting, I would not have guessed this was an old world wine. When cool, nose starts with dark ripe fruit, taste is full and starts with a sweet impression and silky smooth finish. As it warms, the age comes through on the nose and it finishes a bit hot, confirming the 15.2 ABV.

    February 10, 2021 - Pours dark ruby with heavy tears

    Aromas with some meat, provencial herbs, cherry liqueur

    Chalky, kirsch, raspberry that's all super concentrated and oscillates between somewhat pleasant and howlingly feral.

    With an hour+ of decanting the alcohol is absolutely brutal. I called 15% and change and the label states 15% and change. This isn't a testament to my deductive skill but rather the lack of alcoholic integration. Anyone with a sensitivity will likely find this unpalatable.

    August 20, 2020 - Dark cherry and black raspberry fruit notes with cedar and stone. Fresh and balanced with a medium body. This is an outstanding wine for the price. I'm running out to buy more! Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre.
