This is a big, bold wine. On the nose, blackcurrant and blueberries take a lot of leather, tobacco, allspice and licorice along for the ride. The palate is rich with blackberries and plums, with savory aspects equally forceful. The tannins are somewhat stiff, but would be welcome with a big, fatty steak on the plate. A zippy acidity embraces the wine’s minerality, providing a lip-smacking refreshment. — 5 days ago
Fantastic oxidation, a great example of how great producers can grow in a poor wine region, care for how the grapes and wine is produced, and make a fantastic wine. Imagine and aged Taurasi with a hint of heather and spice. — 14 days ago
Drank 4/14/17. Decent pairing with chicken sausage and lentils.
Big nose of raspberry bramble, cherry, underbrush, and Blackberry liquer. Red fruits on the palate, with herbs, spice, and cherry. Medium to firm tannins on the finish, dominated by red fruit. A touch hot. I beleive WA went like 96 pts on that. Can't quite get there, but a nice wine for the price (roughly $27).
4/22/8/3/4 + 50 = 91 Pts. — 11 days ago
Really nice. Held onto this and it’s still strong. Terrific acid accompanied by cherry, bitter orange peel, with creamy undertones. — 3 days ago
