    Nose is all about the barn yard. There's a little dookie in the mix. The texture is lush but a bit like rare meat. There is almost a blood component to it. There is a presence of rasberry on the fruit side. This is not a wine that fruit bombers are going to dig. I like the style. If there is one complaint it is that the wine is a little dis-join...
