Loved this as a first bottle. It's full of fruit and MAN is there a huge nose on this wine. Vanilla like I've never smelled before. Great taste, smooth finish, though could cellar a while longer I think. I'm opening the next one in a year or so to see if I, in my nubbery, can tell whether it's different after a tad more time. I'd definitely buy this again, though much above $15 and I'm not sure it screams DEAL like it did ...
Earthy & Spicy
If you don't like Carmenere, don't jump in to this one. While it's a blend, and the fruit is great with a good structure, the Carmenere comes right through. The smoky and spicy nature of the Carmenere is great here, and, for my taste, the berry fruit of the Syrah is a winner. We like this for a good 'anytime is the right time' wine. Just a bit expensive for the every day wine - but we'd use it for that if we could! Also, we picked it up on sale for $16 - and I wouldn't go higher than that. There are better values out there unless it's on a good sale.
Big & Bold
Great wine for the price. Very fruity, smooth tannins. Compared to what you'll find in a store at $15, this wine is a top contender.
