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.
