Floral notes of blackberry and black currant. Strong tannic structure and great fresh acidity make this a great food wine. Black olive finish.
Classic Bordeaux...hint of vanilla, mint, oak and dark fruit.
Fairly long finish.
an earthy, oak wine filled with dark currants, dark fruit components, well balanced, very enjoyable and a great price!
Nice dark wine, with hints of vanilla and oak. Perfectly paired with a nice steak.
“Nice ripe dark fruit with a dominance of cassis melted with some hits of oak and vanilla. Well integrated tannins. Very pleasant and well made in a classic style. Very attractive wine to drink right now that can as well benefit of a few more years of ageing.” Andreas LARSSON Best Sommelier of the World (2007 ASI) “A solid, forward, upright version, featuring slightly cedary grip that frames the black currant, roasted fig, cocoa and dark olive notes. A twinge of roasted earth chimes in on the finish.” Wine Spectator (Nov 15, 2010) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5exMCQMrw8
