- Tasted at Total Wine 3/6/10
This is a ponderous, clumsy wine. Good depth of fruit, but a bit much on the leather, tar side of the flavour spectrum. Pricey for current enjoyment, and I see no improvement with time.
I really liked this wine. It was bursting with full bodied berry flavors and is long on the palate. Would pair it with a roast or perhaps a flame-broiled steak. I purchased a couple of bottles to cellar just to see how it will develop.
