Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($52) Full ruby-red. Plum, spicecake, chocolate, mocha and nutty oak on the nose. Lush on entry, then compellingly sweet and plump in the middle, with a distinctly confectionery quality to its mouthfilling fruit. This will never be mistaken for an Old World wine. With its exotic sweetness, soft tannins and chocolatey oak, this is a guilty pleasure.

Opened and decanted for 3 hours. Beautiful aromas of dark cherries, black currant, raspberries. A hint of heat prickles the nose. The body was definitely a "wow" for us -- vanilla, tobacco, plums, black currant. Not everything was together though. Finish was long with a battle between sweet and somewhat harsher tannins. The alcohol was nearly over the top, but just pulled back from the brink. I think this bottle has a lot of potential, but we are going to let the others rest for at least ther next 2 - 3 years.
