Deep dark and purple to core, infact light barely gets through this one. Th enose is a mix of vanilla, pepper, wet slate, and nuts, all smeared across a palate of dark fruits. In the mouth it causes me to drool with it's lush texture and fine tannins. The oak makes itself known in the background as myriad flavors come through in the mouth with cherry, blackberries, dark chocolate, pepper, cut grass and pure grape notes being only a few. 3.5/5 [NR]

Trincadeira/Aragonez and Cabernet Sauvignon 1 yr American Oak Nose shows green pepper, spice, dilll, wet slate, and chokecherry. Very rich. In the mouth it's soft and lush with strong fine tannins. Flavors of Raspberrry, pepper, cherry, and light smokey oak round out this fun wine. Rich and dense yet with an overall freshness. 4/5 [NR]

Very, very good bottle of wine. Dark aubergine in color, this wine was not filtered and threw some sediment so if you don't like that you may want to decant. Aromas of plum and vanilla were echoed on the palate, which had some blueberry notes enter into as well. There was a grip in the mid-palate from toasty oak, and the texture was fairly silky. A nice substitute for pinot noir, it would go with almost anything you would have pinot with (pork, mushrooms). We had with sausage pasta with saffron.

Dark cranberry red color with a tinge of brown on the ring. Meat juice, cranberry or cherry syrup, and slate on the nose. Incredibly soft and silky in the mouth with cinnamon, nutmeg, dirt, meat with an overwhelming strong cranberry flavor on the finish. Medium body and acidity, although I sense the acidity is covering the tannins.
