Thanks for the gift Shannon. Couldn’t stay away from this. Good stuff, too. Lovely ruby red color with some browning around the edges. Nice nose of dried herbs, leather, sour cherry and spice. Elegant wine with great texture and solid finish that is all about earthiness and mushroom character. Love this wine and at around $25 retail, this is an absolute steal. Recommended.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
