Critical Acclaim

"(100% graciano; aged in French oak for 11 months): Opaque ruby. Sexy, high-toned cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by notes of Indian spices and fresh rose. Smooth and seamless in texture, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors that become spicier with air. The floral element repeats on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and persistence. This wine delivers uncanny value and has the structure to age. "

I liked this wine enough to order 6 more bottles. Spicy, a little bold. I'm a cab lover and enjoyed this wine.

Not tasted. Only one star because the entire order was frozen during delivery pushing the corks out for several bottles. The order was returned and the replacement shipment is scheduled for March (warmer weather).
