Rubinroter Wein. Beeriges Bouquet mit schöner Würze, Zimt und intensivem Duft. Im Gaumen konzentriert und körperreich mit weichen und reifen Tanninen, langer und eleganter Abgang.
Alluring, with roasted coffee and vanilla bean notes giving way to a supple, rich palate of dark cherry, mulled currant and blackberry fruit, all pushed by a nicely integrated, loam- and grilled herb-tinged finish. Drink now through 2010.
Touching up against syrupy, this ultra-rich style of Syrah from Apalta in Colchagua is pumped full of coconut, barrel char and deep berry fruit. Itrsquo;s a saturated Syrah with palate-coating berry, vanilla and spice flavors. Itrsquo;s also slightly candied and immensely ripe. Finishes with barrel notes, chocolate and thickness.

Ruby-red. Energetic cherry-cola and raspberry aromas offer impressive clarity and a suave floral overtone. Sweet red and dark berry liqueur flavors are complemented by sexy vanillin oak and Asian spices, with supple tannins carrying through the finish. Emphatically modern and quite seductive.
Richly layered, with ambitiously styled fig, mocha, espresso and bittersweet cocoa, backed by a lush beam of boysenberry fruit. Fleshy and toasty through the finish, with the dark fruit lingering well in the background. Drink now through 2010.
