Beautiful and unique wine that’s been a real change compared to my recent tries. The unfiltered amber hue is striking in the glass, folding into pinks and reds. Candied ginger and nectarine peel mash together in a winter cocktail like profile, but are held together nicely with brown sugar, some malic flavors, and a soft floral touch. Cacao and tropical notes reach out in nice undertones. Structure is great for 6 years old. Evolved slowly with each sip.
Excellent with Asian flavors. — 2 months ago
Recommended by Stanley Tucci, served by Jeffrey Bell in Omaha….. we like it… dry, I say complex, dusty ? Lots of Tannins, unripe fruit…. Ok we like it — 6 days ago

Pop and pour. Nice dark color.
NOSE: nice. Deep cherry (the good kind, not the cheap wine kind). Graphite. Smooth baking spice. A whisper of cassis. Oak. Pomegranate. Some root vegetable.
TASTE: black pepper, paprika, black cherry. Medium weight. Silky BBQ! Beeswax finish, some calendula. Tannins leave the impression of bitter leaves, like oversteeped green tea. Interesting…I like this. Simple, plus a touch of the exotic. Should go well with the Middle Eastern dinner that is planned. 90. — a month ago
Excellent example of Frappato. A chilled glass went perfectly with my pizza. Cranberry and earthy flavors, with smoke in the finish. A great pizza accompaniment. — 2 months ago
