Fairly minty on the nose but at the same time focused and clear, with a very pretty array of earth, oak, spice and crisp fine herb notes that come together nicely. This has plenty of weight but it’s still well-balanced with juicy acidity and lovely fine tannins that are embedded in the rich blackberry fruit. The backend shows wood tannin and nice tobacco leaf and spiced notes with wild blueberries on the finish. I would like to see some more length here, but this marries power and elegance quite nicely with a really lovely integration of fruit and oak. New World and unabashed, but pretty delicious. I have to add that I don’t mind herbaceousness in my Carmenere, but this has very little and yet manages to be fresh. 91pts

A bit oaky at first, this really pops in the glass with aromas of violets and cracked pepper that recall Syrah, layered over pomegranate, sour plum and green citrus peel fruits. This is a rather big wine, with lots of richness and a slightly creamy texture. The tannins and acidity help add tension to all that richness, keeping this lively in the mouth. Expressive blueberry and damson plum flavors are framed by fine oak spice and vanilla notes, all leading to a rich, polished and long finish that shows more of a red fruit profile. This is a bit of a wine of texture, big yet so smooth, though it retains a certain sense of transparency and freshness as well. Sure to be a crowd pleaser. 89pts

Big, rustic and exploding with blazing hot fruit, tanning leather and power. Full of chocolate, eucalyptus, inky black fruit, tar and oak. A powerful wine that demands a hearty grilled meat to pair. Wow.

Big peppery rum raisin nose, with nice tannins and rounded acids on the body, giving way to a melony finish. Very well rounded in spite of being so bold and spicy.

Big nose of cocoa and almonds, very earthy, with chili powder. The body is dry, has a sharp tannic punch that eases out into a chalky mouthfeel. Nice to drink a glass or two, like an IPA.

just love a deep red wine - a build of flavor that bursts early and smoothly disappears. Enjoyable and easy to drink

    Smoky on the nose. Bold body with hints of dark cherry. I need a nice steak to pair right about now!

    Dark--but not opaque--burgundy color with a bright garnet rim; a little smoky at first on the nose with dark cherry fruit and hints of tobacco and leather. Smooth on the palate before the tannins come in for a slightly astringent finish.
