  • I've always liked this bottling as a big luscious and, well.. slutty offering. This vintage is definitely further out in that vein. It's wearing fishnets. For those that like Caymus Cabernet, try this. It's loaded with gobs of black fruit and instead of that dusty terroir it's more muddy, silty stuff. Oh, and it's a quarter of the price. Great QPR.

    Portugal- from bigger, huge, gargantuan reds to super minerally, old world creatures. Love it.

    Qualitatively: Dark purple with a rather large ruby rim. N: Black raspberry jam, incense, cranberry, bay leaf, maraschino cherry, cinnamon, muddy compost and licorice. P: a bit boozy, luscious mouthfeel with broad but unobtrusive tannins, red apple acid, tart cherry, oak on the side palate, blackberry compote, light touch of mulling spices and silty earth. Tannins build on the finish. Neglects the back of the palate.
