I normally like Carmenere wines but this falls horribly flat at the end. Tasted at Geneva wine tasting 4/18/2010. Read more

i am lost to as why it is described as a 'dessert' wine. not at all, but a solid, dinner wine.

Complex, red fruit and cherry yields to prune with a backdrop of oak. Finishes with slight chalk. Tannins are well structured but slightly overbearing. Melliws well with some air to make a fine table wine.

Consistently an amazing wine. this one is a little young, but based on the track record of the wine, I am sure will show its stuff in a few years.

Inky ruby. Ripe aromas of cassis, blueberry, dark chocolate and spicecake. Lush and broad, with seductive sweetness and good lift to the dark berry and cherry flavors. Finishes sweet, with good creamy length and fine tannins.

Very friendly, with ripe raspberry and boysenberry fruit laced with a streak of cocoa powder. Not complex, but focused and tasty. 15 percent Merlot. Drink now.

Tiefe, intensive und purpurrote Farbe. In der Nase intensive und komplexe Aromen nach Pfeffer und roten Früchten am Anfang. Danach Pflaumen und schwarze Kirschen mit einem Hauch von süssen Gewürzen. Im Gaumen reizvolle Tannine mit einer sanften Struktur. Sehr gut ausbalanciert. Frische Fruchtaromen im Abgang.

Tiefrote Farbe mit violetten Nuancen. Intensives Bouquet von roten Früchten, mit frischen Noten von Rosmarin, weissem Pfeffer und süsslicher Würze. Durch die Eiche bestechen feine Vanillearomen mit einem Hauch von Muskat. Am Gaumen angenehm fruchtige und weiche Tannine, gefolgt von frischer Säure und einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.

91 Points - Wine Spectator"Very stylish, with nice underlying richness as the suave toast melds into the pear tartine, Jonagold apple and floral notes. Long, creamy finish has nice lingering minerality. Drink now through 2010."

Winemaker's Notes:

A full-bodied and expressive red, with plenty of berry, red plum and chocolate-spice flavors. There are nice mineral and cedar notes mixed in, with fine tannins on the finish.
