Purple in color. 15.24% ABV. Dark fruits, stones, kirsch and crushed stone on the nose. Full in body and supremely elegant. Plums, black cherry, grilled meats and anise on the palate. Tons of structure. This wine needs a few more years in the cellar.
Nose of grape juice. This smells like a cheap merlot or zinfandel. More and more I find I enjoy Efeste wines less and less. Nothing wrong with the bottle, just no longer my style. Since I have more Efeste wines than any other producer, I decided to cancel my wine membership. I need to either drink these or let them age a bit before coming back to them.
Palate was unremarkable. I am writing this an hour or two after finishing my first glass and, to be honest, I can't remember any details. Very young ... Very fruity ... Very New World ...
