Yet another winner from John at The Austin Wine Merchant. Mom is home from Cedars. Doing well, thanks. Lovely sunny day, 60's and clear.

The nose is tarry, in a good way, Black fruits, pepper. The palate is medium body, nice acids but not at all heavy. Blackberry, pepper, tar and earth, but never heavy on the mouthfeel. Nice pairing with anything wanting red. Started it with one of my favorite "junk food" movies "Beerfest" starring my bud Paul. I love Saturday evenings.
Looking forward to the rest of the bottle with "Murder on the Orient Express" on BlueRay. It will work.
Drink this wine!
