This wine has a lovely deep ruby color in the glass, and a nose that is a wonderful blend of jammy fruit, black cherries, currant, anise and somewhat of a sour twang, suggesting that the sweet fruit might be well balanced by acidity. The taste is an explosion of fruit in your mouth, with rich ripe berries, yet the acidity of some sour cherry notes really balance the fruit mid-palate. The finish is quite smooth, yet it has a wonderful woodsy sort of taste on the finish, which again is a surprising counterbalance to the rich fruit.

Poured the first glass and let it breath for thirty minutes. Loads of ripe red fruit on the nose and on the palate. Good balance of acidity and a touch of soft oak on the finish. This wine is a real bargain.

It is a forward, savory, ripe, succulent offering that should prove to be a crowd-pleaser. It is an outstanding value that will deliver enjoyment over the next 5 years. This fleshy red offers an expressive mix of dried cherry, licorice, cola, clove and vanilla flavors. Features some density, gentle acidity and just enough tannins for grip. Drink now through 2016. 107,000 cases imported. -TM (15.2% alcohol): Bright violet color. Dark berry and cherry aromas and flavors show liqueur-like character. Warm, spicy and fleshy, with good finishing breadth and gentle tannins. Plenty of fruit here, and just enough spiciness to keep the slightly jammy fruit in check.
