    Strange wine. Moldy nose. (May be corked.) Very unusual mouthfeel—seems weighty. Very dulled flavor of dried fruit. Then, some saltiness. (?) Lots of tart acidity like I might expect from a Chianti, but more a fuller body than a Chianti. It will be easy to pass up on this wine the next time I see it on a store shelf.

    Beautiful dark purple color. Rustic woody nose, but, also, a hint of alcohol. On entry lots of dried fruit flavor—raisins and prunes, but without the sweetness. Some of that road tar sensation. This, to me, brings in complexity after the fruity entry. Pretty serious unresolved tannins. I don’t discount a wine just because of tannin. Tannin is a good thing. I think that there is sufficient tartness here to suggest that this wine can benefit from additional years in the bottle. Good today, but better in the future.

    Nose is almost acrid—seems really acidic. Some tart grapefruit on entry, then, some tropical fruit—banana—or melon. Some grassiness. Yes, there is quite tart acid. That, of course, makes for a refreshing wine. Certainly, easy to drink, but, equally certain, not a particularly sophisticated wine.

    Tangy red fruit nose. Yes, red fruit—cherry, plum, raspberry, take your pick—on the tongue. Lots of acid and a fair amount of tannin around the edges and the rear of the tongue. A bit of vegetative green on the rear palate. More sideways on this wine will do no harm, and may, actually, be relevatory.

    Murky purple color. Lots of earthiness or woodiness on the nose. Nice level of red fruit on the tip of the tongue. The earthiness appears mid-palate. The major characteristic of this wine, though is tannin. Tannin along with firm acid makes me think that this wine is an excellent candidate for multiple years of aging.

    Fairly dark purple in the glass. Fruit/berry heavy on the nose. Really not over-the-top fruit on entry—some blackberry, some suggestion of lemon in the background. Certainly not fruity sweet. Sufficient acid to give it a good backbone. I’m not normally a “Grenache guy,” but I like this one.

    Garnet color with quite a bit of light coming through. “Tart” nose of, more than anything else, red cherries. Fairly light on the tongue. Light berry flavor. The most telling characteristic is acid. Moderate level of tannin. Lightness and acid tartness makes this an easy drinker.

    Reddish purple color. Bright nose of stone fruit. Sure enough, serious ripe red plum flavor on the tip of the tongue. Some hint of bitter spice—clove-like. However, that may be the tannin. This is, pretty much, a tannic beast. However, it also has nice tart acid. I am seriously liking this wine, right now. However, the tannin and acid components make me believe that this wine can age—settle down and become more complex--for quite a few years—maybe, decades.
