Good fruit, easy to drink. A bit high on the alcohol, but it's not overwhelming.

I usually like lighter reds but this surprised me positively. Balanced, slightly spicy and quite suave wine. We pared this with hard cheeses.

Dark purple and exuding aromas of blueberries, blackberries and white pepper. A dense core of cedar, black olives, cola and plum compote. There is a glycerin feel on the front palate but along the way is balanced by acidity and gritty graham cracker like finish.

Enough elegance to carry it's 14.8% with lots of grace. Always a fan of @Seghesio.

Different suggestion than I've had before, this one is alright. Would buy again to have by itself because this was 1 of 3 in a blind tasting.
