I was expecting a bit more punch from this wine when I saw the blend of grapes. The nose was rather tight and subtle with traces of dustiness and ripe red fruit. The first taste was nicely focused and had a nice freshness and juicy quality. The mid-palate transitioned to cherry flavors and something slightly bitter; perhaps dark chocolate. The finish had a bit of grip and spice, which didn't last very long. I think it would have benefited from decanting, since it opened up the second day.

Winemaker's Notes:

Seductively perfumed aromas of black raspberry and smoky Indian spices with floral and mineral accents adding complexity. Juicy gently sweet red berry flavors pack good punch but are fat-free and show no rough edges. Clean and focused on the finish with the red fruit qualities repeating. Boasts excellent clarity and energy. [38% Syrah 32% Carmenere 15% Cabernet Franc 8% Petite Verdot 7% Malbec]
