(2013 Vintage) Dark purple stains the glass, a perfect showcase for the fruits in this intense red wine. Inky and succulent blueberries and blackberries overwhelm the palate, while a touch of roasted, savory and earthy tones round out the mouthfeel. Supple and spicy, this full bodied wine was aged in American oak for 14 months. Toasty vanilla on the finish combines with chalky and chewy tannins to create a finish with structure and character
Amazing nose on this. Big fruit aroma. Lots of tannins, well balanced with the fruit in the flavor. blackberry, currents, mulberry. yum!
Dark berry aromas and deep garnet colors. A little young and fruity tasting though. liked the other vintages better
interesting blend. a lot of chocolate and spices on the palate. overall a good wine... not necessarily my style.
oak bomb almost overwhelms hints of tobacco. when well chilled more subtle oak and more fruit forward.
For the price point (at Costco), this bottle is incredible.
