Amazing value. And a fantastic wine regardless of its price. Cherry and black currants in spades with chocolate, earth, dried herbs, and tobacco. Superb finish. Despite being aged in a combination of medium sized oak barrels and small oak barriques, there are zero obtrusive oak flavors. Wonderful silky/velvety texture and there’s even some nice structure underneath the fruit. Drinking great right now, but should last for quite some time. Purchased in Austin at Costco for $20/bottle. At that price, buying this wine almost feels like robbery. A wine to purchase by the case.

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.
