Nose: very aromatic, perfumed, sweet, floral (rose, lavender, dried violet) cherry, raspberry, herbs (thyme and sage) black tea, spices Taste: medium bodied, medium tannins, medium- acidity, cherry, purple fruits, rose, hibiscus tea, spices, thyme, spices, slightly earthy, quite long finish with sage notes Very unique wine maybe not 100% my cup of tea but quality is there and if you like this kind of wine your score will be easily 90+ points
There's no getting around the fact that this is an odd wine that isn't for everyone. Even those of us who like it have to be in the right mood. Had it with some rich, earthy food (mushrooms) and it didn't really work. Maybe better with herbs and/or acidity?
This is one of the most unique and interesting red wines I've ever had. Totally weird and probably not for everyone, but if you're always on the hunt for oddities, this variety is a must. Amazing notes of juniper, pungent flowers, menthol, herbs. Bright and juicy.
Had this at a Italian wine press tasting and it clearly stood out after 50+ wines. Winemaker told me it would age very well for at least 10 years. 90-92pts
