Review from original list creator: "This smells great filled with precise aromas of black pepper, blue floral notes, high toned spicy accents and rich huckleberry blackberry and wood spice notes. Smooth and polished on entry, then turning dense and chewy and a bit folded in on itself. This is one deep, weird wine, not Zinfandel in many ways but hitting more of my Languedoc buttons, are more like Syrah, all earthy, deep, a little beefy and spicy and rich but not fruity rich. The long finish is more true to type, more briary fruit and finely ripe blackberry fruit driven with a bit of tangy boysenberry on the lightly medicinal and aromatic finish that shows hints of violets and cinnamon. This is so complete and so complex, tannic and chewy but fruit is so bold that one hardly notices. Definitely has great potential to improve but already is just a stunning field blend. 95pts " by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
