Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - The nose showed rich blackberry, purple florals, pepper and an odd note of seasoned breadcrumbs. On the palate it was medium bodied with crunchy tannins, dark berry fruits and a hint of spice. The finish displayed a note of blackberry jam that saturated the senses and lingered through the wine's long close.
I didn't mind this wine as much as many of the previous tasters. It was decanted for one hour before the note was written and was very tight at first but opened up nicely in the glass. There isn't much depth here but you get what you pay for and I'm sure this would be a pleaser at a party.
