Editorial Reviews for C3 Crazy Eights

Snooth User: Gregory Dal Piaz
4.50 5

Lightly jammy cherries on the nose but nor overtly sweet with fine mineral notes, licorice, asphalt, vanilla and an earthy potato/root vegetable tone. This opens with lots of exotic tea notes that seem a little sweet then intense acidity balances out the deep, dark ripe cherry fruit. While mouthfilling this retains a fairly light texture with intense, bright cherry and watermelon flavors. This is really well balanced and while it’s sort of a fruit bomb it lacks the overt sweetness that would make it vulgar. It’s a whole hell of a lot of wine with a vibrant wild cherry finish that finishes with impressive length while remaining juicy with herb and spice tones, a little plummy leafiness. Pretty impressive if a touch hot. 91pts

There's some heat on the nose which leads to sweet marachino cherries. Its a full bodied wine with a lot of iron, bitter cherry and plums. The finish is still tight, the bitterness comes through, and is very fruity with plums, and good tannins from the oak - leading to some cedar notes.
