Dark inky in color with a short, dirty brick rim.
Strong nose of black currants, cooked plums, oak, licorice, spices, coffee, pencil lead, cola, peppercorn, leather, bone fire smoke, dark chocolates and sweet candy.
Full bodied and soft with medium plus acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, currants, wood, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, black pepper, graphite, peppercorn, leather, vegetables, tobacco and espresso.
Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tart raspberries.
This is a very nice Brazilian Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Feels like an old world wine.
This 8 year old has a nice mouthfeel, but not fully balanced. The mid palate is very tasty, until the ending, which is a bit too tart for my taste. I actually liked the nose better than the palate.
Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and remove the barnyard notes.
Paired very nicely with food.
Thank you Alex for sharing.

Here's something new, different and wonderful. Perfectly balanced acidity, creaminess and nuttiness. Lovely apple and hazelnut finish. — 20 days ago
Plum and apple skin on the nose, juicy plum green fig and overripe raspberry acidity and fruit moves into red clay and earthy depths, Brazil nut, leather, maybe a touch of tomato leaf or geranium in the finish. Silky medium body and low tannin with some heat. Really a lot going on. — 13 days ago
