Our Review

This is a big, sweet, ripe, brooding wine. It has massive blackberry, black currant, chocolate, bacon and grilled meat flavors that are almost overpowering. The tannins are firm, and the wine is remarkably light on the palate, offering a warm, airy quality despite a strong oak component.
