I never heard of this wine until a store in Vegas (2007) showed me it. Was surprised I picked up the 2001. Purple maroon in color, balance was good, and full bodied. Bouquet reminds me of a light zin. First sip is smooth, then a tang appears and has a lingering finish that shows on the middle of the tongue. But I still say this is overall smooth. Not hot either. I feel the extra aging in bottle helped smooth this wine out. Friend notes high alcohol for her; weighs in @ 14%. If you find this try it, you won't be disappointed.
