Aaron:  A wet oak nose reminded me of what old-world wines should smell like.  This was rounded out with a somewhat thin tar and blueberry.  The flavor was pretty dry with moderate tannins.  Tree bark and earthy notes dominated with a hint of strawberry encompassing the backdrop.  89 points

Teri: Oaky blueberries on the nose and an overall hearty wine but easy drinking. Medium and noticeable tannins with flavors of juniper berries, tannic raspberries, and white pepper. Hearty, flavorful and better with food. This bottle would stand up to heavy meals. 89 points
