Berry aromas with a bit of floral and blueberry. Sophisticated womanly palate. Beautiful blueberry blackberry fruit with a tinge of cocoa. Lovely
Disappointing for the price.
This wine suited my pallet well. Definitely unique in blend and a far cry from the heavier reds I gravitate toward. It was unpretentious and I smiled when I tasted it in spite if myself. A simple pleasure that I intend to buy several bottles of.
Aroma of cinnamon, blueberries, roasted tobacco, paprika, strawberries. The mouth is rough in the beginning, smooths out a bit, and has a nice oak/vanilla touch in the middle.
Cherry, blackcurrant and cassis on the nose. Chocolate notes compliment a round and meaty mouthfeel with rich fruitcake flavors. Sweet finish on cocoa and almonds.
Dark fruit and hints of tobacco, overall a nice wine.
Just released, and extremely young...score based on drinkability now, with some future potential added in. Nose is closed down. Even with air its not giving anything up. On the palate, there is bright, sweet raspberry fruit with a touch of pepper and a bit of alcohol heat. It is a bit thin also, which, after just drinking a bottle of the 2003 Sinister Hand tonight, is a disappointment. I would definitely wait a year or so to drink this wine.
This Gigondas (Cote du Rhone) style wine is bright and fruity with a burst of ripe plums, sweet herbs, & baking spices melowing out to a medium finish. This wine has it's own cultfollowing for both the excellent quality of the juice, but also because of thestory. As told by winemaker DavidO'Reilly, a famous Irishman was in a race to homestead some land. Many folkswere rowing towards land, and the first to arrive would gain title. TheIrishman in question knew he would not reach shore first, so he cut off hishand and threw it onto the beach, thus being first to touch the ground.Cheese Pairings: Soft cheeses, Saint Nectaire, Port SalutFood Pairings: Roasted Meats, Grilled Vegetables
