Intense and brilliant ruby, red color. The nose is perceived highly expressive ripe plums, cherries, strawberries with hints of spices and nuts. The palate entry is sweet, good concentration and volume, firm tannins that will give longevity.
"The 2007 Calcura is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 20% Malbec aged in French oak for 12 months. Cedar, spice box, tobacco, violets, and assorted black fruits lead to an incipiently complex, nicely proportioned, lengthy offering that has enough underlying structure to evolve for 1-2 years but can be approached now. It will continue to provide pleasure through 2017+."
The Wine Advocate
"This is prickly and spicy on first take, followed by an
aromatic wave of ripe berry and tobacco. It feels jammy
and almost heavy, with creamy, milkshake flavors of
blackberry, vanilla and cream, and a warm, Port-like finish.
