Garnet with slight signs of age on the edges. Black cherry on the nose spice and dark fruit on the palette. Medium bodied with smooth tannins. — 15 days ago
Coffee-espresso and bakers chocolate; blueberry-blackberry. Smoky, with dark toasted rye, cassis, sloe berry, mulberry, and darkest tobacco. Licorice, black currant cassis, and tobacco reflections on the palate. 10 years unwavering here, rich with dark, burnt brown sugar and cedar, pliant tannins, mouth coating richness. Very seductive and extracted, rich and round.

I didn’t even know they made a Viognier. While very good it was just missing the depth of a Condrieu. — 5 months ago
An American Can classic. Nicely done. Deep purple colour. Hints of chocolate and red berries and currants on the nose nice chocolate flavours and and dark fruit. Well balance - tannins well balanced but quite present - will last another 5 years plus a baby Araujo — 3 years ago
