Halcon Esquisto Yorkville Highlands 2016

Member Review by EMark:

Something of a volatile nose. Lots of red fruit on the tip of the tongue. Sadly, sweeter than I normally enjoy. When I hold the wine in my mouth for a few seconds, I get a stony flavor or sensation. This wine seems a little bit hot to me--not enough to really bother me, though.

More red than blue in color. Bright tart nose—some earthiness. Initial impression belies the nose. Candied berry fruit on the tip of the tongue—cherry. As the wine passes back under the palate I get more earthiness and tartness, and the wine acquires sophistication and complexity. It does seem a bit hot, and I’m OK with that. As my taste buds are anesthetized by alcohol the annoying fruit syrup characteristic that I first noticed diminishes to the point that the wine becomes enjoyable, but still not my favorite Esquisto.
