From 1/2 DOs for Argentina's highest quality wine subregions so far. Delicious dark and complex chocolate and very juicy fruity smoky. Only problem for me was the color was very fuscia and I'm expecting opaque so not as extracted?.. Definitely not acidic or very tannic; just a glugger. Great wine — 21 days ago
Was certain it was muscadet. Low weight, heavy acid. Pocket change flavor, all kinds of lemon, some peach no oak. Has a kind of color that implied possible lees or age to me so I guessed 2-3 years old with lees. No spice. This is a glugger — a month ago
So... lol. My buddy and his gf came over to my parents (my hometown) while I dogsit. And my parents don't drink.. So she's a fan of wine and I scour through the wines my parents friends give them and I found this... they might be pissed we'll see. One more from this collection to come in a few months!
Delicious. Utterly chocolate currant cinnamon focused with refined yet vigorous tannins. It was a long night drinking that ended on this, but it still held so much even after the other wine and beers. The element overall of this was just upper class. It represented a lot going on. Transforms over 2 hours not in a better/bad way — 15 days ago
You can tell they really get close to the full 20% Viognier allowed to blend this in these wines. The bright cherry and faint peach flavors and a color shade thicker than blood. Not very oaky, new wine to definitely throw into the vast memory bank under "new". Rich raspberry, not very floral, medium + weight, medium acid, medium minus tannin. — a month ago
Half bottle with the roomies. Killer ripe cherries killer coffee to it, $14. Great wine, felt like rating this based on how good it is not for the deal. Other vintages I've had I've thought "hm maybe a little thin" not this. Vintage is a little heavier in style — 11 days ago
Wow. Much to love. We sell this wine and this was part of my tip tonight for a table. I don't like to review unless I get the time to actually appreciate it. This is a Franc heavy Bordeaux blend followed up by Cab and PV. Notes of dark cherry, prunes, some sour raspberry.. there's a darker smell and herb notes of some lavender and dark chocolate. I get a sense of amaro to this probably from the Franc and PV (addictive). You'd find these tannins in most merlots. Acid is a little wild/active like Sangio. Little oak. Nose is dark and deep. Palate is juicy and Italian. — 23 days ago
