MTACZAK got this one right. Very interesting and delicious. Dry with sweet fruit. Preferred when poured chilled. As it warmed, lost some zing.

Ruby red with brickeded edges. Strawberry aroma filled table. Extraction was on the + side, but not heavy. Wonderful red fruit medley, a bit of spice, and delicious. Refreshing acidity, mild tannins. Very nice medium lenght finish. I think it has a lot of life left.

Dense deep purple, full body, fruit filled aroma with some nail polish remover. Full on palate with extracted black cherry and raspberry, cedar, and that nail polish remover faintly in the background. Med-full tannins, good acidity and a full, long finish. This is a teeth stainer. Very new world.

Second bottle of evening. First was Bodegas Alto Moncayo which was much more new world with heavy extraction and fruit explosion. This bottle was much more tame and approachable. Fruit: raspberry and blueberry. Medium on palate with mild tannins and medium acidity; short finish. Very good QPR.

Very light straw in color. Very little aroma, just a touch of lemon zest. Light on palate with lemon and floral notes and light acidity. Very refreshing as an apertief with cheese.

So, this wine is now in a sweet zone in my opinion. Still very fruit forward (blackbery/black cherry cobbler), the oak has integrated and the acidity is nice. Medium body but looks heavy.Love Turnbull fruit; it's so pure. Nice, long finish. Sorry it's my last bottle.

Huge nose of black fruit. Decanted 1 hour. Sediment was filtered out. Palate showed extracted black fruit, oak, and bell pepper. Drank with 2005 St. Emilion which is more my style so my score could be low.

Decanted 1 hour. Much, much better than last year. Purple with scarlet at rim. Nose was complex with nutty, fruit and floral. This bottle was integrated and delicious, but I think it may improve again in the next couple of years. Fine, delicate tannins. Swetish Raisin, plum and black fruit. Nice acidity. Paired with pizza and it did the the trcick....
