Deep crimson; dried cherries, prunes, cedar; juicy dried cherry, raisiny, medium-full body, good acidity, noticeable heat, firm tannins, lingering finish. A mini-Amarone with seemingly more heat than the 13.5% on the label. Green/bitter notes however, on the finish.
Thin ruby red color. Very fruity on the nose with a hint of cedar. Strong mouth feel -the wine has an initial punch that fades fast. Tannins are well balanced with a citrus finish. A nice ripasso baseline.
Strongly alcoholic smell. Tight nose. Taste: very woody, like cedar. Lots of tannin. Packs a punch in the entry but it evaporates fast leaving behind a nice lingering aftertaste that focus on citrus tannin, which is nicely positioned. Smokey, sandalwood and dark fruits: dark plum, black currant. Very dry and has depth. A bit of dark chocolate and flower too. It is fruity almost reminds me of grape juice concentrates. Will be good with Italian food.
Smell: strong alcohol, woody, cedar, smokey, black cherry, dark plums, hint of sour raspberry, warm spices. Tate: very smooth long finish, medium body, very fruity. Sharp tannin finish contrasts with a smooth opening. Notes of wild blueberry, plums, sweet cherry, strawberry leaf, coffee bitterness, and a little nutmeg. Also a pleasant mellow cedarwood, smoke and old oak. Nice wine with nice structure, fruity but not boring. Has character!
Very good for the $15 price. Thin ruby-to-purple in color. Took a solid hour to open up, but worth the wait. Tart plum, round and velvety black stone fruit. Shortish finish, easy on tannins. Nicely balanced and versatile, a well-crafted drink-now red that could pair with poultry, meat, pasta, pizza.

Ganske udmærket vin til tilbudsprisen 40 kr. Måske er den endda 50-55 værd. Endimensionel blomsteragtig, men ikke ubehagelig, duft. God fylde i smagen og udtalt ripasso-karakter i balance med en pæn syreholdighed, der holder vinen fra at være marmeladeagtig.
