Dark reddish/purple color. Intense aroma of black raspberries. This medium-bodied, very lively wine has loads of ripe red plum and black raspberry flavors with a slightly spicy character and a long, juicy finish. This vintage has a depth of flavor and intensity on the palate that is almost unheard of for wines at this price. It's a winner both before and during a meal. Certainly enjoyable in its youth, but it will age beautifully. A fun wine to try with a wide range of red wine-friendly foods, and one that will delight even the most pretentious connoisseur.
"Good bright, dark red. Black raspberry, game, flowers and licorice on the nose, plus an exotic hint of white fruits and a whiff of maple syrup. Smooth and rich but a bit stunted and medicinal on the palate, in a bonarda way. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and no shortage of acidity."
