 This wine has a place in my life. It was the wine we used to toast at one of my daughters weddings. It was good I liked the flavors and the aromas.

 This is a blend that I would drink again. This wine well well balanced and enjoyable to drink. I like pineapple over tones and the smoothness of this wine.

 We had this with some good cake. It's pineapple nose and fruit in the flavor was the perfect complement.

 For a red I thought this wine was refreshing. It had sweet cassis aromas a light body and a short finish. Nice and refreshing.

 I like this, My wife liked it, My grandma liked it, and my daughter well she didn't like it. I guess this is just a good wine for us older folks. My daughter didn't like the richness and that was one of the reasons I did like it.

 Medium body and a nice aromas make this wine very good. My wife and I went to dinner and had this wine as desert. Not with desert. It was the desert. Not the best use for this wine but thats what we did.

With such dark coloring black and purple this nice textured wine has a bigness to it and a very nice texture. It is pure and rich. Aromas of earth, smoke, ripe black currants, minerals, barbecue spices and pepper. There is a noticeable creamy oak to it.

There is a lot of aromas from this wine. Damp earth, new leather, black fruits, spice, new oak and tobacco to name a few. This powerful, medium bodied wine has a dark plum color to with some red to it as well.
