 Tasted by songoose on 5/11/2014 & rated 87 points: Decanted 1 hour. Didn't show well. Green and harsh, rough around the edges. Vinturi helped a little (always a last resort for me). Disappointing. (744 views)
 Tasted by Uwchlanjohn on 7/25/2013 & rated 89 points: Paired very well with a pasta dish featuring fresh basil, tomatoes and thinly sliced garlic combined with olive oil. Gave it plenty of time to open. Would love to have a few more bottles. (1068 views)
 Tasted by Corgoson on 5/24/2013 & rated 90 points: nose: fig, black berries, black cherries, oak, light soy sauce. Taste: pork sausage, beef jerky sort of meaty taste. Plum, fig, raspberry. Some cherry drop in the end. I also get some warm spices. Dry and mid-full body and big flavor profile. Almost a little sweet bbq sauce going on? Get hint of basil. I find this to be enjoyable and interesting. Good tannin and light toasted oak. Maybe a hint of heat but perhaps it needs more air. Needs air. (1175 views)
 Tasted by songoose on 5/22/2013 & rated 92 points: Modern meets rustic - a nice mix of sheen and garrigue/earth. Definitely the type of wine that a wide variety of wine drinkers and lovers can enjoy. Give it some air for maximum enjoyment. Interested to see if the savory notes develop over the next few years.

 Tasted by ATLeonidas on 5/16/2013 & rated 82 points: Big and bold. Decent dark fruits at first, giving way to some herbal qualities. Also a lot of toughness - like dry leather, but hard to pin. Seemed a bit disjointed and unsure of itself, other than - BIG! (1146 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 2/6/2013 & rated 91 points: Dark red violet color; appealing, tart red berry, ripe red currant, cedar nose; tasty, medium bodied, ripe red currant, red berry,k juniper berry, light olive, cedar palate with medium acidity; medium-plus finish 91+ points (13.12% alcohol; 5.1 g/l acidity; 3.37 pH; 50% Cannonau, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon) (227 views)
 Tasted by ricard on 3/26/2012 & rated 85 points: Strange wine - first it's like Ribena with alcohol and then after a while it begins to show an unusual charm, with hints of Mediterranean herbs (oregano, thyme, rosemary) and an enjoyable sweet spicininess (cloves, cinnamon), but overall this wine's identity is unclear to me.
