The wine was aged in Hungarian oak for 24 months giving it a toasty oak walnut and brown sugar nose, with definite blueberry and boysenberry fruit swirled in. On the palate it is rich and complex with well rounded integrated tannins, bright and intense dark blackberry and blueberry fruit and a long finish with a hint of anise and black pepper.
A big, rich, hearty wine that is meant for food. It will pair well with red meat, lamb and pasta dishes. It is ready to drink now through 2014.

Lovely red. Can be paired with your end of summer grilling. It's a full body wine, but was actually the taste was smooth.
Not bad. Quite unusual taste. Not used to it yet. Reasonable price but would like to try others from different regions before buying more, since I am new to wine. Tastes a bit like a cabernet, which I think I would prefer.
