The Swiss Army knife my father gifted to me in 2002 on a trip to Niagara Falls has been a prized object in my life. From etching initials into tree bark to camping to building furniture to opening bottles of wine, this glorified knick knack has transcended that category for me and will always have its place on my desk wherever I may be.
Rich and creamy bouquet. Black pepper and vanilla and unusually, goat cheese.
Light in terms of tannins, but a medium to high acidity makes this stand out. Intense red cherries. Packs a punch berry fruit up front, the acidity rushes in at the midpoint and then ends with a slight, yet welcome, astringent note. — 3 months ago
The nose was dark and beautiful, showing spiced cherry, plum, dried orange, and crushed violets. On the palate, I found tart black fruits, inner floral and herbal tones, with energizing acidity matched by fine tannin. It finished intensely structured on dark fruits, undergrowth and hints of ash. This needs time, but I’m already loving it. #collisioni17 — 3 years ago
Really great zippy, bright wine. Medium bodied, fantastic rich finish. Dark berry. Great spice, tar, bit of earth. Bold. So much fun to drink! — 5 years ago
