Wow. This is one of the best reds I’ve had all year. Just incredibly rich, yet elegant and fresh. I was worried about the potential of excessive oak treatment, but I worried for no good reason. I can’t even notice the oak treatment, and all that shines is the terrific dark blackberry and blackcurrant fruit and great freshness. As food friendly a big red wine as there is. Although not cheap, this is still a QPR in my book and just a flat out great wine that will have the stuffing to age for decades. If that’s what you plan to do, I suggest getting a case, because any less won’t last very long given how this is drinking right now.

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.
