Garnet. Odd in that it was better when first opened and deteriorated somewhat rapidly. Initially some nice firmness and backbone but that did not hold for long. Round and juicy, dark strawberry and cherry with a touch of greenness.
This is the third bottle that I have had. Ruby red to maroon in the glass. Sour cherries on the nose with a hint of barnyard, forest floor, licorice, and raisins. Spicy on the taste, plenty of tannins but very well balanced acidity. A bit of warmth and hints on olive on the palette that faded with time. Enjoyed the wine.
Lots of red fruit on the nose, more of cherries and plum. A bit of wood with hints of sweet vanilla, cinnamon, licorice, and raisins. Definitely full-bodied, dark ruby to maroon on the rim. Well balanced acidity with distinct tartness, beautiful taste of olives. Mellow tannins and drinks very smooth. Drank it over three days and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Visuel rouge framboise aux pourtours très légèrement orangé. Au nez, cerise mûre, fruits rouges, réglisse, légèrement poivré, boisé perceptible. En bouche on retrouve ces mêmes arômes, avec un boisé modéré et une touche d'olive également. La réglisse revient en rétro. Au toucher, belle souplesse, tanins presque fondu. Acidité saine, un vin coulant et digeste. Les 14% d'alcool sont imperceptible. Très belle expression du Cannonau!
I like this. It went well paired with grand cru gruyere cheese. The cheese absorbed some of the acidity and tannic properties. This was decanted for about 2 hours before trying. There were hints of cedar plank and oak barrel mixed with green olives and fresh soil on the nose. It had fresh spring water and leather with a continuance of olive in the taste. There is a hint of wood also. It has very long legs that stretch. It's also medium plus acidity. This was worth giving a shot.
