juicy gorgreous back fruit aromas with coarsing deep dark chocolates, bolder, more complex, a bit of spice on the finish. really awesome stuff here
Black fruits here with just a touch of menthol and spices. A robust wine, a bit bigger than I usually go for. I'm thinking grilled meats with this one.
The wine is a deep ruby in the glass, but given the blend, it's not as opaque as a traditional Malbec. The nose was rich with black fruit, ripe plum, cassis and berries, and a lovely hint of oak and dried herbs, and a bit later there were distinct coffee notes as well. As the wine opened up in the glass, there was a definite sweetness in the nose. The taste was just wonderfully complex on a number of levels. There was a good bit of ripe dark fruit on the outset, and a nice sweetness, but not so much that it ruined the taste. The fruit gave way to some lovely dried herbs, coffee and just a hint of mint, with so many flavors interplaying on so many levels. On the finish, there were hints of minerality, and some wonderfully rich tannins that brought this wine together.

Showing inky, dark purple with red hues. The nose was highly expressive with fruity, spicy notes, showing a mix of blueberry and cherry, cinnamon, and hints of coffee grinds, violets and minerals adding depth. It caressed the palate with soft textures, balanced acidity and flavors of ripe blackberry, a dusting of dark chocolate and spice. Sweet wild berries were met by a mouth-watering, bitter streak on the finish.
Deep ruby in the glass. Lovely fruit on the nose. Black and red currant with noble claret qualities, along with ripe black raspberry and other red and black wild berry fruit. Nice aromas as well of oak vanillin and just the slightest earthiness. Almost a hint of mint and basil. Nicely textured and well structured. It enters on juicy, fruit-driven flavors of jammy berry fruit balanced by nicely fine-grained tannin. Slight suggestions of white pepper and some roasted herbs complement the rich fruit. Finishes fairly dry but the acid keeps the mouth watering. This is nicely crafted to sip on its own, but will pair well with a variety of foods as well. The acidity should even pair well with lighter meat dishes and those with tomato-based sauces. Some hints of cedar on the finish and sweet tobacco. Nice wine. 93 pts. 4/17/13
lovely bouquet, smooth, fruity and easy to drink
Big, bold, with some Cab Sauv it gives it even a more ripe black fruited nose and on the palate there is considerable acid that brings almost a blue fruit element to the palate.

Intense colour, predominantly red and violet tones. Scented, red ripe fruit, tobacco leaves and spices. Full falvoured, red and black berry fruits, complex round long lasting aftertaste.
