Opened a bottle of this wine last week and was very pleasantly surprised. Wine was sampled alone, not with any food.
Color: Deep ruby red, almost opaque
Nose: floral, cassis, a hint of smoke and maybe black cherries
Palate: Sweet oak, red and black fruits, and a hint of red licorice.
Very tasty wine, especially for those who love a good red which hints of residual sugar. A little weak on the finish at maybe 10 seconds or so and not overly complex. At 14.5% alcohol, that sweetness comes most likely from the barreling. Per the bottle, 2278 case produced.
Me, I am picking up a case.... :+)
