Reminds me of when I was a kid and would shove the entire contents of a mini box of sun maid raisins into my mouth at once. This is like that, not only in flavor but also in texture. #sunmaid

Dark and opaque in the glass. Deep purple with dull, water sheen on surface. Rim has a minutely brown hue.

Aromas are hints of table Pepper, subtle cinnamon, black berry and baked flour (fried tortilla)

It's smooth and long finishing. Plums and wild black berries, to the bitter seed. A little raisiny. Somewhat overripe component. Not a lot of acidity, so the flavor comes a little quicker. A good bottle. Probably had more life when first released. Opened 10/16/15

Revisiting a favorite from the days of discovering wine above the bottom shelf. Still remember the excitement of realizing why people talk about wine in such a unique, flowery manner. Who knew that for just a few dollars more I could have something connected to the land, history & people of its birthplace?

Raisin and plum fruit forward nose with flinty finish. Light mouth feel, but long lingering finish like you are sliding into a bubble bath. Because you should be drinking this wine.
