I really like pride wines but this bottle was a disappointment compared to other bottles. An overpowering alcoholic nose destroyed the currant and Blackfruit profile that Is the signature hallmark of this wine. I noticed it less with my steak, but on its own it was impossible to overlook.
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.
I really wanted to like this wine because previous exposure to other vintages were positive. Well made wine but never reached the wow zone for me. Perfect level of extraction but didn't have the pure fruit I look more. A little stewed for my taste which negated a higher score. Still....quite nice. Served with farm raised sockeye salmon.
