Tasted as part of a .Hedonistic Reds blind tasting. This buzzsaw of a wine finished in second place.
An attention-grabbing nose of pine, peat moss, and over-ripe berries. On the palate, the wine tries to takes off like a pit bull on a leash. Searing tannins and acidity are matched head to head by vibrant playful cherry and eucalyptus flavors. Huge sailing finish. Not a rich or ponderous wine, but rather, an exciting, aggressive wine that demands to be noticed. 94P
