Open insistent with lots of white oak and jam accented with Asian and baking Lots of clove and ginger with a sweet cigar tone that supports the jammy cherry fruit. Big in the mouth, real powerful but also pretty fresh with the fruit well draped and concealing the structure, has a bit of Petit Sirah like plum, earth and spice, then the fruits turn bluer, blueberry boysenberry and vanilla with a touch of RC cola. Clean and focused if a bit short on the finish. The finish is pleasantly spicy and actually quite long but the sweetness mutes the flavors. Punchy and full if lacking a bit of subtlety. 90pts

This smells intense and yet restrained a bit of an unusual combo. A bit of creosote develops with airing, joining the clovy, jammy fruits but then this does blossom offering up a complex array of aromas ranging from herbal and floral to medicinal and gamy with notes of dried peach and green walnut even. This is strangely appealing, smells a bit like Christmas. Very relaxed in the mouth, virtually no tannin but enough structure to give this decent presence in the mouth. Deeply fruited but not vulgar with its dark toast, and licorice tones contrasting with the red berry fruit with it’s candied edge. The texture is a bit too creamy for me and the finish is a touch short but still a solid wine 89pts

What a spectacular wine. So bold and fruity with a dark color. This is the third in the series I have had and I can't decide which I like best! (The others are: Loco, Heretic, and Peasant - which I have yet to have.)

The nose kind of made me think of the beach for some reason, maybe coconut? It had a deep brambly taste, with cherries and vanilla in there, and a very long finish. It's big, but I still think it could go nicely with food without overpowering it. I liked it better than Peasant or Heretic.

Wonderful dark color. Straight, appealing smell. Pleasant fruit-fwd taste, with smooth texture. Overall, very enjoyable.
