Always a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc.
On the nose blue berries, cassis, earth, tobacco, cedar, pencil, medium to full bodied on the palate with the same fruit flavors, this wine does not impress at this moment, unresolved tannin and a short finish 92 DSP — 10 days ago
I tried my first bottle of this several months ago, and since then it’s really settled down and blossomed. Light color, but the nose pops with perfumey cherry and raspberry, along with subtle notes of moist earth, spice, and sandalwood. In the mouth, it’s got intense flavors in a floaty carriage, with deep red fruit and lots of savory notes. Long finish, with a teensy bit of tannin. Alcohol in check, and enough acidity to keep the intense fruit buoyed up. Superb. If you’re a Grenache hound like me, get some of this. — 4 days ago
So light I almost forgot to taste it. Glad I did, beautiful wine. It’s such a nice combo or the Pinots and blended so well. Lavender and hibiscus with a bright red fruit nose. Strawberries are most pronounced though I’m enjoying blood orange and cranberry too. Really a great bottle that went too quickly. — 5 days ago
Colour is mid Ruby red. Dusty cherries, savoury cherry pip, a touch of menthol. Thought there were hints of caramel oak but I note it was fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperature. Malo in vats of cement, stainless steel and wood (large bottis I would imagine).Good structure for a Rosso - silky tannins. Very enjoyable and a great match with Fettuccine. — 4 days ago
Raspberry both fresh and jammy, tart red cherry, boysenberry, blueberry, blackberry, rosemary leaves, dusty forest floor, black pepper, asphalt, crushed stones, elevated acidity, med minus integrated tannins, bright ruby in color med minus concentration. Med+ finish. It’s lovely wine. A very fresh 2014 vintage. — 2 days ago
Aika hyvä vampire viini, hyvin hilloinen mutta ei liian mehuinen. Mielelläni joisin uudestaan.

Pale, lemon colour.
Medium (+) intense aromas of toast and lemon.
Palate is dry, high acid, medium alcohol (12.5% abv), with medium intense flavors of lemon, toast, and some tropical notes (pineapple, guava). The bubbles are velvety.
Medium length finish.
