Sommelier and wine broker living in Spain. Spanish and Italian wines are my passion but I love a good wine from anywhere!
Mmmm this is a tasty one! Lovely aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry and pomegranate with under notes of vanilla, cinnamon, tobacco, and new-car leather. All this plus smooth as silk tannins and luscious acidity made this an incredible pairing for roasted ox-tail. Doesn’t get much better than this! — 2 months ago
Black fruits, dark chocolate, vanilla, with a tinge of violets on the nose. Quite juicy acidity on the palate, with firm tannins and extra mineral flavors of charcoal and campfire rocks. I have never heard of this wine so I am pleasantly surprised! Young now but 14% alcohol, so it should age nicely! — 4 months ago
Fruitier than I expected with aromas and flavors of fresh black currents, plums, and blackberries. Vanilla, smoke and clay pot round out the notes. Tannins are nicely adhesive and the acidity is med plus. Decently long dark chocolate finish. Maybe a bit of residual sugar here but it could be the 14.5% alcohol. Nice, not amazing, but definitely a good drinker. — 3 months ago
Brownish garnet color with a decent amount of sediment. Aromas and flavors of cooked plums, wet leather, cinnamon bark, tar, and red roses. A bit past it’s prime, it still has a bit of oomph in the acidity. Nice enough for a vintage Barolo. — 4 months ago
Deep dark ruby in color, with prunes, stewed plums, and blackberry compote primary aromas; with moist earth, vanilla pod, and cacao coming through second. Very earthy on the palate; potting clay, wrought iron, and dust along with smoke and tobacco. Acidity is still amazing! Tannins are present and husky but on the mellow side, like in baking chocolate. Long savory finish. Invokes sighs of satisfaction and fulfillment! — 4 months ago
Savory aromas of plums, raisins, balsamic, pencil lead, and tomato leaf. The palate develops with a mouth watering acidity and velvety tannins. Further developing flavors include tobacco, leather, and wet soil. Enjoyed with a spicy penne pasta with local mushrooms. All in all a lovely wine! — 3 months ago
Fresh cherries, raspberry, vanilla, coconut, and pencil lead aromas and flavors. Lovely smooth but slightly grippy tannins and quite ripe acidity. After some time in the glass it gave me some mushroom and wet leaves/dirt. Overall very savory and food friendly. Super! — 3 months ago
