Gary's tasting notes

I smell this wine and think, "3rd generation millionaire"... what I mean by that is, there's just a classic family tradition. A pedigree that is undeniable. Dark cherries, blueberries, and a hint of dirt makes my initial portion of this review a little more descriptive. Classic! This wine is big, bold and ripe, with very aggressive, firm tannins that have silky fruit to them, which cascades off the palate. Looks for this wine to last 10 to 20 years and pair with a very large steak.
