Opaque ruby in the glass, this wine yields rather dark, decidedly dusty notes of tobacco, cigar box, Asian spiced, gamy, roasted black raspberries and vanilla on the nose with just a hint of violets. Round on entry with very soft tannins and good acidity supporting sweet flavors of balsamic herbs, wild raspberries, cocoa shavings and sweet fruit tea edged with light medicinal and asphalt tones. It turns a bit spicy with subtly drying tannins and hints of dried dates, black pepper and grilled meats on the lingering finish. Slightly rustic if rich and fairly complex. If a bit all over the place on the palate and finish. 84pts

Very soft and smooth despite high alcohol content. Purple-ruby color with a tinge of maroon at the edges. Nose opens up with aeration, definitely vanilla and hoisin/Asian spice notes on nose and palate. Creamy with fig and dried fruit palate (no cherry/raspberry) and nice long finish. Went well with grilled chicken and veggies. A little heavy on the vanilla at first pour, which kept this from being a 4 or 5 star wine-- it's a little quirky.

Oaky, artificial is dominant. GDP says, "This wine is like a mouse trap. Nice blend of fruit and oak, with good tannins, which is the cheese. But when you try and get that cheese the trap springs and ends up tasting like crap." That is an exact quote! Not a very pleasant wine, but it was free for me.
