Holy fruit bomb! Very juicy. Not an every day easy drinker but certainly unique and a fun change of pace from more tannic reds

Holy fruit bombs Batman! But oh so smooth and velvety. Medium bodied with lush dark berry fruit. NOT SWEET. Fruit transitions into flint/slate minerality towards the finish. Great summer afternoon sipper. Would crush (wine pun intended) with a rack of sticky icky BBQ ribs, but soft enough to compliment grilled chicken.

Look at the damn label. It's 2010. Note it.

2010, unbelievably good for the price. I am going to purchase two protective cases.

Smooth and delicious. First had in Milwaukee with a chocolate pairing. No bitter or acidic after taste. Bought 2 bottles when we left the tasting

Just the right amount of fruit and tannins. Found at my local Costco at a good price. Will buy again and set some down for a few years and see what happens.

This is a very big wine reminiscent of an old vine zin. I like that it is from Alicante Spain, where I have visited . Huge alcohol 15% , much needed after a stressful day in Florida. LOL. Like it!
