Beautiful red and black fruit, firm tannins, smoked meat, spice box, structure. Reminds us of a good right bank Bordeaux. Obviously could age a while.

Medium-bodied, lush tannins, good complexity with strawberry, plum, tobacco leaf, cigar, and resiny oak notes. Good length and complexity.

Big, new world style. Vanilla, cigar box, black fruits on the nose. Smooth tannins, herbs on the palate. Medium finish. Tastes more like a California Bordeaux blend. Can age a little more too.

Drank at a Spanish restaurant in Bucharest. High cost performance, lasts long on palate.

I'm actually getting a lot of bright red and black fruit, which was a touch unexpected. Toastiness and tobacco combine with the fruit on the palate to deliver a delicious punch. Well played with this one, could easily age longer.

Dusty and earthy on the nose with nice traces of wild raspberries. Supple tannins with a nice pleasing medium body. Went well with elk rib eye dinner.
