TASTING NOTES

"Bright ruby. Intense, smoke-accented aromas of red and dark berries, potpourri and incense, with a lively mineral nuance adding loft. Stains the palate with sappy black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors that are given lift by juicy acidity. The floral note repeats on the finish, with silky, building tannins harmonizing nicely with the wine's energetic fruit. On the exotic side and drinking extremely well already."

"A somber and reserved nose plays right on the edge of reduction and I would suggest decanting this for 20+ minutes if you're tempted to try a bottle upon release. To be clear, this is not reduced in the true sense of the term but the fruit is compressed. There is both good volume and verve to the delicious and admirably concentrated flavors where the supporting tannic spine is well-integrated on the balanced, dusty, firm, complex and lingering finish. This is one of the more robust and muscular wines in the range and should clearly benefit from extended bottle aging; indeed it will need at least 5 years or so just to unwind as it's quite tight at the moment." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 58
