Dark transparent ruby purple in the glass. Nose of blueberry-plum cobbler. Fruity palate of blueberries, blackberries, vanilla cream. Medium tannins and medium plus acidity. Excellent chameleon of a wine just as at home with burgers on the grill (or in the sack from Checkers) as with prime rib. The Coro Mendocino gang is onto something -- as evidenced by homage ventures like the Outer Coastal Plain's "Coeur d’Est" blend -- and we American wine drinkers should support it.

Clear dark ruby purple in the glass; slight cling of color. Shy nose on opening; blackberries, blueberries, plum, whiff of pepper. Medium-full body on the palate of charred plums and stewed blue- and blackberries with white pepper. Firm tannins from entry to the moderate and dark finish. This is my third Coro and first from this producer (previous were an '04 Pacific Star and an '04 Fetzer) and the quality still shows. I really like what this venture is producing.
