Light and spicy nose -- earthy with vibrant fruit flavors. The finish is pretty short and pretty tannic.

Pleasantly fruity and light, especially with red meat or dishes heavy in tomatoes (it went well with lasagna), but it's a bit heavy in the wrong ways, sticking to the tongue, and perhaps overly tannic, but I was drinking this 2003 early in 2008, so it may just not age well (outside of a cellar?). I seem to recall more recent vintages not being marred in these ways.

I found the nose to be rather reserved with hints burnt cherry over scents of cedar and tobacco that follow thru in the flavor. In fact I found the tannins & acidity to be very soft suggesting that this is ready to drink now, not for aging. With just hints of earthiness the wine is very graceful and mild; very pleasant drinking.

This is a very dry wine. Which isn't a bad thing in my opinion, but dry shouldn't be too light on flavor. It has a very slight fruit flavor, and light tannins in the beginning. has a quickly lingering berry, and cedar flavor. Very, very mild flavor. Almost tastes like the wine from back in my Catholic School days. Probably won't buy again.

Wine Tasting NotesComplex aroma of spices with a predominance of liquorice, while the oak remains discreet. Intense color with a slight accumulation of yellow, masked by the powerful red hue of the grape. On the palate, the impression of acidity on the tip of the tongue is immediately reflected towards the back by a touch of persistent tannin. Meanwhile soft on the finish, with no fixation at the back of the mouth and a lasting sensation of toast developing underneath the tongue.
