It reminds me if you were walking down a dirt road (somewhere near a wild blueberry/ raspberry bush) & it' raining slightly, it's a bit windy so you smell the berries, but also the wet dirt, and then some how a little bit of old school wood in there...like the smell of an old church or a musty wooden floor or old books???...amazing to smell..tasted it 3 hours later - taste buds picked up berries and cold meat, after 3 hours it was smooth & easy to drink.

I held this first bottle for 2 years and on opening discover a soft nose and a heavy wine. it required a long opening, i aired it well. Dark friut a delightful soft finish for a complex layering of dark fruit and earth.
I enjoyed matching it up with a firm goat cheese salad and a bison steak with mushrooms. The second botte should hold well for at least another 14 mths. excellant value ****

Bold and medium full-bodied blended with good percentage of syrah. Fruity and a bit minty with a long finish. It is a good idea to air it for a while before drinking.
