Very dark purple. Quite a complex nose--can detect pepper and what seems to be oak. However, the back label seems to indicate that this wine was not oaked. Complex nose, meet complex palate. Waves of fruit--plums, table grapes--flow through the mouth. Distinct pepper note. Slight tannic dryness, but not really significant. Fairly smoothe on the back of the palate, and a fairly short finish. Back label also says cellaring will be rewarded. I don't know about that. I'm sure that this wine would not be hurt by cellaring, but I question what could happen. If the layers of sensory experiences could be harmonized a bit, then mayybe there would be improvement. US$11.99 at Total Wine.
Great blend. So many flavors. Very smooth with a great finish.
Some floral tones and an interesting, blood-like metallic tone. Soil, spice, tobacco and toasted oak also on the nose. Nice texture with flavors of plum, cola, ginger, sassafrass, au jus, white pepper, spice all accenting red and purple fruit. 3/10/12
