Raspberry, cherry, rhubarb, currant, loamy oak, oak and hints of white pepper. Good structure and moderate tannins.

The nose of a LCV should be savored, always. The black olive, my god the black olive. The leather, the cigar box, the campfire. Savor the savory. Nobody does savory like Randall Grahm. Fruit? Oh, yeah, I smell fruit, too. It's all that other stuff I live for, though. The Mourvèdre-heavy mix of the 2012 vintage has balls. The blackberry and plum flavors are forceful, magnificent. Tannins are strong, but with enough give to make a good sipper. I usually am not called to have a steak with LCV, but this time I am. Spices fight for attention, and get it. There is cardamom and cinnamon, sage and rosemary. The oak spice is like a dollop of whipped cream on top of dessert, light and tasty.

Rhône style blend continues to improve. Excellent wine at a consumer friendly price. July 2018.

Deep purple with aromas of bacon and blackberry, medium body with smooth tannins and plum, cherry, blueberry and thyme. Delicious with steak dinner. The alien theme is carried over on the top of the cap!

Surfing with the alien. Translucent garnet. Nose of ripe brambly raspberries, dank earth, cocoa and leather with a hint of toast. Palate is ripe but restrained, tannins slightly coarse. Old world sensibility.

Spicy aromas, peppery, fruity, lively acidity and soft tannin. Going to try it with a mushroom ravioli.

A little yeast, a little high alcohol, not my favorite vintage of this one. Spice over the top.
