Had this wine over the course of a few nights. There seems to be some bottle variation as the last bottle I had showed a lot of oak, but not this one. I opened this to be consumed with steak one night one, and the wine paired well. Although I don’t think anyone would mistake this for Bordeaux, it is a very well made wine. Sweet fruit, medium bodied, good freshness. Blackberry and blueberry fruit with some earth and a minor green note. I can see how this could get better with some more bottle age. One can drink it now with some decanting or let it slumber for a few more years. Very nice wine.

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.
