Coffee and fennel on the nose, sort of chalky, with a pear/banana mouth.
Bright red cherry aromas, very inviting. Warm spice and good structure, tar and black cherry, eucalyptus and leather. Nice long finish with a bit of tannic pucker.
Rich merlot with good depth and body. Cedar, cherry and coco flavors. Nice dusty tannins on the mid palate, moving to bramble and woodsy cedar notes on the finish.
Meaty aroma with a quick finish. Hints of vanilla, blackberry, capped with a woody finish
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee. Do you see any Teletubbies in here? Do you see a slender plastic tag clipped to my shirt with my name printed on it? Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it? No? Well, that's what you see at a toy store. And you must think you're in a toy store, because you're here shopping for an infant named Jeb. Yeah, I like animals better than people sometimes... Especially dogs. Dogs are the best. Every time you come home, they act like they haven't seen you in a year. And the good thing about dogs... is they got different dogs for different people. Like pit bulls. The dog of dogs. Pit bull can be the right man's best friend... or the wrong man's worst enemy. You going to give me a dog for a pet, give me a pit bull. Give me... Raoul. Right, Omar? Give me Raoul.
