Sorta jammy red fruit on the nose, darker still in the mouth. There's little nuance or grace for me here, but that's alright. It's a red that calls for a short, cheap glass, a wobbly table in a dark corner. A cigarette, a Moleskine. A companion who doesn't speak the language. Bring us a carafe of it; it'll all work out in the end.

Juicy cherry aromas, like cough syrup and cherry cola. Palate is somewhat more rustic, with burnt raspberry flavors. Medium acidity wine, this is a nice wine for spring.

Lots of cherry, kind of acidic, the body is really weak. Aromas of roasted chicken are enticing, but there's no body. What a cork-tease.

Cherry, oak, a bit of something like cognac. Sharp acidic notes and not much tannin it seems. I don't really like the body on this.

Big ripe fruity nose with some lunden's cough drops and a slight vegetal component. Really nice ripe big syrupy mouthfeel with moderate complexity on the finish, which leaves my mouth feeling like I just had cheerios.

Faint fruit on the nose - had to pull pretty hard to coax it out. A little on the thin and acidic side with bitter cherries and a slightly overripe plum component. The finish is a bit autumn and cola and tastes a bit like a cotes-du-rhone wannabe. Not a bad wine, but for me it's a tough one to pin down.

Let's start at the end: there's a prune note that hangs on for the finish. Before you arrive, you'll pass through dust, dark fruit, a bit of chocolate, and right at the beginning of the journey, big fruits & cola-nuts.
