Deep ruby. Meaty nose shows blackberries, currants, licorice, cinnamon bark, and an underlying note of raw, Peruvian black olives. Rich and expressive, concentrated and masculine, it's a big wine that needs a bit of air to show its best. Displays fine length, ample tanning, black fruit flavors that turn savory, and spices on the finish.
Deep purple in the glass, immediate nose of blackberry, likely drinking at its peak, delicious integration and balance of fruit, tannins, acid and wood. Palate is expressive with a hint of rum raisin, berries, black plum, cacao and tobacco leaf. Long lingering finish invites another sip. Very nice.
Nice plum and dark fruit flavors on both the nose and palate with a medium to long finish. Did a compare and contrast with a 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape and did quite well and both wines went nicely with the roast pork loin with sage and fontina stuffing wrapped in prosciutto and apple compote.
Enjoyed with some good friends before dinner with a little cheese! Great aroma of dark berries and a little smoke, showing a deep purple color. Rich and full bodied with lots of dark fruits and well placed tannins. Definitely a great wine at this price.
