Wild and delicious with cool fruit , spice, pablano peppers, and just the right hint of funk.

Wild and fresh black fruit, animal and minty hints. 5 years young with a vibrant future.

Strange and unique. Charcoal, olives, and licorice. Weird and wondrous Syrah. Tannic enough to let mellow for a few more years too.

Evolved nicely in my glass, but have a feeling it would be better with more age.
