Big, round, juicy and fat, with density, ripe, dark fruits, a kiss of oak, black cherry and licorice. Not refined, but it is so full of fruit, flavor and it\'s going to be fun to drink on release, that more than makes up for it. 90-92 Pts

With a touch of smoke, flint, mint, espresso and black cherries, the nose is quite nice. Open, round, sweet and fruity, with a nice kick of chocolate-covered cherries in the finish is what you find here. You can enjoy this now, or give it a few more years of age.

This is showing really well today. The ripe black cherries, cocoa, licorice and smoke on the nose and palate coupled with round, soft, polished textures hits the spot. If you are seeking a forward, delicious wine for drinking over the near term, this is a nice choice and it sells for peanuts.

Forward, ripe, sweet and fresh, medium/full bodied, with sweet, dark chocolate covered blackberries and thyme from start to finish. This is already quite tasty, and it should be even better with time.

Still showing some its licorice, black cherry, coffee bean and earthy personality, this wine has lost some of its vibrancy and juicy fruits with time. However, the round textures are still present in the finish.
