Big & Bold
This wine tries to be many things, from a ripe cote rotie to an australian gsm. Rich raspberries assail the palate, followed by sage, underbrush, and herbaceous notes, most likely coming from the Touriga? Fairly aromatic for such a dense and heavily extracted fruit forward wine, this is not likely to appeal to most mainstream tastes. From a technical standpoint it is quite good and ready for consumption now, but it needs a good hour or two of decanting to prevent overwhelming the palate with strong flavors. If you do not like australian cote rotie (the general aromatic "style" of this wine), then it is best to avoid.
