Ramp It Up

Dark ruby, bricking and sediment-ridden. A big lush almost-CA movement explodes out early, fruity and thinly jammy but still definitely old world, a nuance that grows and grows with air. Funkier, barn-yardier and brettier as each moment progresses, by an hour in it is full-on horse-stall and petrichor, stuffing up your nose with old-world beauty while also serving up all your super-tuscan dreams of fruit, cassis, licorice and GOBS of tertiary with its fat Cab participation.

A beautiful wine, easy to drink, black and golden, probably at peak, fruit fading graciously behind completely-polished tannins drying the finish perfectly, but not overpowering all that sweet aged nectar, chubby berry, and storm-drain.

A beautiful little thang, easily worth the nice price.
