The wine looks Crimson colored. The legs are Medium. It smells like Espresso, Medium Toast, Coffee, Sandalwood, and Black Pepper. It tastes like Blackberry, and Black currant (cassis). The body is Medium. The wine is textured Coarse. The wine finishes Medium.
If you are holding this wine, drink it very soon! It's an amazing example of sour cherries -- both the nose and the taste -- but there's not much else going on. The finish is nearly instant. Very little of the two varietals' characteristics remain, this wine is on it's last legs!
Decanted for about 2 hours. This is the second time I've had this wine (not the same vintage). This is a great drink. I've enjoyed it both times. It's a bit tight and a little hot on the nose. Cherries, dark fruit and cassis--fairly one dimensional. Good tannis with a moderately dry finish. I'm drinking by itself, but this wine seems like it would probably do well with food. Nice solid effort.
From JC: We have enjoyed this wine since trying it at a Spanish restaurant we frequent. Mostly cab with some tempranillo. Fairly dark color, oaky on the nose, with ripe red fruits, currants, and some coffee. Short to medium finish. A nice food wine.
