Merlot heavy blend. Spice, dark fruit, earth, herbs, smoke and sweet vanilla. Well integrated tannins and freshness. Not a bargan, but if you have some in the cellar, this one has life. Would love to see this in 5 years. 2010 vintage. #bedell #liwine #nydrinksny #tasteny #tastered #wine

Wanted to like it but can't. Structure seems a bit awkward; the wine doesn't seem to have an identity; the five varieties don't create cacophony necessarily, but they certainly don't produce anything resembling a symphony.

Hints of jam or overripe fruit on the nose. Medium bodied. Very nice and quaint. Really like it.

Impressive rose. Blossom on the nose but a nice bit of tobacco on the palate. Acid stronger than alcohol and a short finish.

Deep plum aromas with notes of earth. Deep, bright acidity layered with drying tannins and juicy plum and prune flavors and notes of blackberry. Lots of tannic structure on the long finish.

Great blend. Very fresh, very drinkable as a casual glass to talk about the day.
