Some things l like - family, long weekends, friends and wine - Revana was started with H Barrett consulting - I buy her stuff - she seems to not be part of winery of late - but I have 09 and 10s that she was the winemaker consultant - now a new winemaker but still purchased 12 and 13s. I bet I got the history lesson wrong but what I was told but enough bs -decanted for 90 minutes - love the nose with cherries vanilla and other delights plus the lady of the home says right mix of pepper and sage (not sure I can go that far) - now the initial taste - dark fruits with some added black olives - really leaving great smiles here - I bet I open another since it is a holiday weekend

Loved this! 10 years in and it’s like liquid velvet. Fruit is dark cherry, cassis with a brambly undertone. Took a couple hours to show its stuff but a pure pleaser! Yum!

Smooth, no tannen, very good overall, not heavy, pairs well with fish.
