Prowein. Lo mejor del segundo día. Especies en nariz espectaculares y una seda en boca.

The mighty mighty tannins of this are at first too much but given a few are the perfect counterpoint to the dark chocolate and blue/blackberries. Is this what a chocolate-covered boysenberry would be? Tiny hint of cedar and perhaps...mint on the finish. Give this lovely some air and it is grand.

Tempranillo - Cabernet - Syrah with modern presentation - a great value around $30

Good fruit, well integrated oak, I just have problems with Syrah (blended here) and that limits the score (love the Syrah in Rhone, but that is about it)

Had on Princess cruise at Share by Curtis stone. It was delicious. Nice smooth black cherry feel but spicy notes.
