2 hour decant. Nose dominated by blue and black fruit, which follows through on the palate with a wild strawberry, cherry, baking spice, plum skin, and more blue and black fruits. Good balance, with sweet integrated tannins. Certainly a "big" wine. Tasty!
Dark red/purple color. The ripe nose of red raspberry and cherry displays the Grenache aspect of this wine. The palate seems a little overripe with red raspberry, cherry, and a slightly pruney note. There is an earthy, beet root note underneath the fruit. Structurally, this medium-bodied wine has low acidity and soft tannins. The finish is packed with ripe fruit. Overall, this wine is very ripe and hedonistic tonight, but it is slightly out of balance.
Splash decant for an hour. Lovely big nose of gorgeous dark fruits w/ a touch of alco bite. While this BIG 7 year year old has resolved its tannins, the wrapping of huge sweetness crushes and distracts from other well meaning elements. Unfortunately big fat CA are not to my taste and thus, I must pronounce this as one of McPrice's lesser efforts. Not in my wheelhouse. Oh well.
