A blend of Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Aragones (aka Tempranillo), & Alicante Bouschet. Hand harvetsted and fermented in temperature controlled open top lagers then aged in new American and French oak barrels. 7,250 cases produced in 2005. Dark purple reddish robe with a big fruit forward nose of dark berrys, tobacco, and cocoa. The palate is full bodied, medium tannins, just the right amount of acidity, balanced, with blackberry and plum standing out. The finish lingers with nice espresso and slight chocolate notes. This should be a big crowd pleaser and appeal to many taste. At $25 US I would definitely buy this again though I understand its pretty hard to come by. 4.5/5
