Tasting:

    Opened one hour before drinking. Opaque, cloudy purple color with a lighter rim. Light aromas of blackberry, plum and damp earth that have a distinct peppery scent. Bold, fruity, medium to full body and an 80-grit texture. Ripe plum flavor intertwined with licorice, tar and mineral. Abundant fresh acidity and supple yet chewy tannins that ended each sip with just a little grip and a touch of back-of-the-throat heat. All this continues through a long mouth-puckering finish that ended with a unique liveliness. No shrinking violet here. This was a powerful red wine that tasted a lot more than the 12% alcohol listed on the label. OUTSTANDING paired with the strong venison flavors and it was delicious with a few bites of Brie cheese after the meal. It improved tremendously from the first pour to the last and we would recommend it be decanted. A bottle that was filed to the brim with substantive red wine.
