Gary's tasting notes
Extremely intriguing on the nose, packed with plum, blackberry jam, black pepper, and Twizzlers candy. Then you're shocked by the palate because while there are no green or vegetal components on the "sniffy-sniff", the flavor profile brings a tremendous amount of mint, green bell pepper, and basil, all on top of black fruits. There's a wonderful balance between fruit and veggies. A little hint of cedar and bark round off the super long finish. Pair this with a grilled steak and you'll be in heaven! This reminds me of the top-tier 1991 Napa Valley Cabernets I fell in love with two decades ago. Look for this to age as gracefully as Madonna, in your cellar for another 10-20 years. Wow, I really like this.
