Earthy & Spicy
This wine begs for a pungent cheese to bask in the heady bouquet. Rosey Goat Spanish cheese with rosemary rind is amazing as a 5-star combination. Complex wine with subtle earth nose, full cherry/plum body and strong finish of spice and little anise.
Earth & Spicy
Nice deep purple color, good legs. Nose is a bit on the pungent side but the first blush mouthful is a wonderfully intense fruitful experience. It shows the earthy flavor which seems to be a bordeaux characteristic. The aftertaste is disappointing as it reflects the original nose and is rather short lived. However, for the cost of $20/bottle it is I feel a great bargain and will stand up to and compliment a grilled steak. Bordeaux usually does better being the highlight rather than the accompaniment.
Did not live up to reviews.
really average Bordeaux, not sparks or depth in drinking. The producer will have to work out a better finishing.
