Member Review by outthere:

Blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, Grenache, Carignane and Petite Sirah 14.8% abv Popped and poured, dark ruby/medium purple with a spicy nose a very fruity herbaceoous flavor with medium body and a flat finish. Over the course of the next couple hours it opened up to an earthy, heavy leather nose. The fruit was more in balance with the spice (not as jammy like the first sip) but still jammy, now full bodied and mouth coating nonetheless. The finish carries that fruit on and adds a tannic grip that had my mouth puckering. Has big legs and will lay down nicely. For big fruit forward drinkers this one can go right now but surely will improve and score higher with time. Could swear there was a leak in my glass as each time I went for another sip it was empty.

Currant and black fruit on the nose. Also, tar, tobacco leaf, cigar box and smoke. Flavors of blueberry, dark raspberry, licorice, graphite, tobacco leaf and spice. Loads of intense fruit. Sweet tannin. Ripe and fruity with great structure. Fresh and pure. Nice! 93 pts. 1/5/13
