This was stellar. Such a rich and homogenous blend of cherry, plumb, violets, leather, and spice. I doubted the rating like most of you until I popped the cork. What a bohemian deal @ 25 bones. Served with linguine carbonara and sweet sausage.

Nose a dark berries. Really dark purple with sediment. Wonderful flavors of dark cherry and black fruit. A touch of sweetness with some interesting spice. My sense is that this will go for a few more years before decline.

30 mins splash decant. Young wine that's already got some complexity, started with fruits, smoke, leather, med-full body, dark chocolate, tannin integrated & fine, little spice from the Syrah. One time trying this wine and impressed at the QPR C$18-19. Will buy more for everyday drinking.

Drinking really well right now. Everything I look for in a wine....great fruit, lingering finish with some soft tannins and a touch of brett. Wonderful!

Served cold at a local restaurant with calamari. Slight citrus and candied lemon nose, mild acidity and minerality with pear and green apple notes on the palate.

5/10/2015 - RGCM Gananda Likes this wine: 92 points

On the nose, comes off like a cabernet. Medium bodied and noticeably softer and more integrated than my last bottle (July 2014). Still shows bright red cherry dominant brunello-type fruit through the middle. Cabernet is in the background adding structure and the merlot comes in on the finish adding a richness, additional depth and darker fruit and chocolate notes. This wine still has the complexity, fruit and structure to last two years more of so, but it will start to lose the complexity and balance that make it such an interesting wine soon after that time. Given where it is today, I don't see it gaining anything by additional time in the cellar; best to enjoy these over the next two years.

Was a nice pairing with chicken parmesan, but it tasted ...faded. Negligible tannins. Body and color of a California Pinot.

Good, but certainly not a 96 point wine that WS gave. Can't say I love the combination of sangiovese, merlot and cab here. It's a tasty wine, but a bit odd flavor profile. Long finish.

En flott super Toscaner IGT. Mrk rd pa farge. Duft av mrke br, seder og lr. Fin syre men tanninene her trenger nok et par ar til pa langs. Eller minimum 1-2 timer i bredbunnet karaffel for god lufting.

The nose was dark with black cherry, blueberry, rich spice, tobacco, and mocha. On the palate, it was silky with soothing textures upon entry, showing ripe cherry, cedar and bitter dark chocolate, made juicy by brisk acidity, yet lost it's momentum toward the close.

Heavy wine with rough tannins but drinks a bit lighter as the alcohol is not that high, good fruit, nice balance, nice bouquet, interesting wine, enjoyed with veal parm, would drink again but probably not available, wine is probably at it peak.

4/20/2015 - Ivan Pakin Does not like this wine: 82 points

Color: ruby, translucent to a little degree.
Nose: fresh, bright and fruitful. Straightforward strawberrry and ripe apples. Interesting spicy (some ginger?) and dry wood tones. Overall medium intensity and rather pleasant.
Palate: light-bodied and bright. It's all minerality and acidity, with only so little fruits on the backstage. The acidity is rather prominent and seems to be off balance given the lack of complexity, though not drastically. Sharp, young tannins. Short finish.
Not sure if it'll age well.

Very sherbety the first day. Second day I'm picking up lots of apples, honey and lemon. Very creamy. Based on other notes it doesn't seem to have changed much in a couple years.

I found this wine barely adequate. Much too developed and without much character, it was also slightly hot. On the positive side it had acid and tannin balance and with an ice cube it was okay. I would avoid this.

Light reddish color with thin body. Slight tannin and grape juice. Maybe it was a bad mix with the food we were having but I thought this was short on complexities.
