Smoky and ashy on the nose with deep notes of speck, pressed flowers, wild thyme and gravel with a whiff of rubber. Great entry, rich yet fairly lightweight with crisp tannins and lively yet integrated acidity. This is dark with spicy herb tones, a hint of vanilla, and dark fruit that has notes of black tea to it. The flavors are nicely complex with emerging notes of leather and wild berries, bilberries, always with a spicy, almost herbal top note, but the texture of this wine is great. On the back end this is remarkably light on it’s toes and gains some dried grass and gamy tones, with lots of dried chorizo on the long finish. A very impressive wine that would be great with roast goat or venison. 94pts

With its wet wool and leather nose, I might expect to see this wine wandering around a farm somewhere. In the mouth, it's full of tar and well balanced acidity, loads of dark cocoa powder and a mellow finish with just a hint of black olive.

I really enjoy the nose, lots of gamey qualities (duck/pork fat), smoked meats, the mouth has heavier fruit, mostly blueberries. More acidity than some of their other wines, but it's still well-balanced.

Bright red powdery nose. Ripe and round like a Cali Cab, but with the sweetness of a zin. Medium bodied with big gripping tannins and some cloves to round out the finish.
