Medium garnet red. Touch of baking spices on the nose with cinnamon and dark fruits. Moderate tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Big punch mid palate but has layers of dark berries with graphite and gravel in the long finish. Drink till 2025. (92+)

My go to tonight was going to be Altamura, but when they were sold out the waiter recommended this. "Best wine she tasted in awhile". When will I ever stop listening to waiter recommendations.?? Weak finish. Could have used a longer decant, but even after an hour it was still pretty flat.

Black fruit, black olives, leather, tobacco - while still a fair bite of tannins, very approachable now, would be gorgeous in 5+ years.

Very fine. I rate this 8 but Lorna says 7 out of ten. Lorna says it's bland but I disagree. We got it for $15 for a half bottle.
