    January 24, 2017 - Still drinking well. Good fruit, nicely balanced. Paired well with spaghetti w/ tomato sauce.

    December 27, 2014 - Was worried I was late to open this, but it's very agreeable. Black berries on the nose and sweet fruit taste dominates the start, but still has soft tannins. Classic hint of rosemary bitterness at the end.

    Long legs, beautiful. Would not wait long to open if I had another, this is primed.

  • burgundybrooks Likes this wine:

    January 26, 2013 - Purple with medium legs. Nose:

    Served with North African style lamb stew (sweet and savory, dried figs in it). The stew emphasized the harsher qualities of the wine but it did work better with roasted red peppers.
