Sweet and brambly on the nose with scents of wild blackberries, fresh herbs, twizzlers and some spiced cranberry jelly. Focused, taut and vibrant in the mouth, this has lovely freshening acidity and pliant tannins that support rich, fresh and lively red currant and slightly jammy strawberry fruit in the mouth. The fruit shows good transparency, picking up herbal nuances, chocolate, and soft red cherry fruit on the back end before returning a rather vivid red currant-and-herb-laced finish that reveals a finely judged underlay of raw oak on the long, succulent finish. Dry, fresh, delicious and an excellent value. 89pts
Earthy wood aromas and blackberries - good butteriness and umami. Lots of fruitiness in the attack, and throughout the length of it. Rich chocolate feel in the finish.
2006 vintage. I liked it when I tasted it, so I bought a bottle, and it turned out to be very average. Cab - Syrah - Merlot blend, I taste plum, dark chocolate, a bit of oak. Drinkable, but a bit overpriced at $15, would not recommend. I have no idea what the $125 price tag is all about, there must be some mixup.
Drank during summer 2011. Smooth-drinking wine with cocoa and berry flavors.
As much as I wanted to like this wine, I disagree with Snooth's "drink dates" being "now through 2010" (as of Dec 2009). I love the blend of varietals used, and the color. But it smelled of raspberry-scented soap, had a stemmy and young. If you HAVE to drink it now, drink within 24 hours if you've already opened it, but personally, I'd stick this bun back in the oven for at least another year before cracking that bread open again. I might try the '06 vintage on or around Aug or Sept of 2010 next year after a good 20 minutes in the decanter first, and it MIGHT be tolerable.
