  • Very dark purple. Expressive and hot nose of dark fruit, scorched earth, fruit compote, leaves no doubt already that they went all the way with concentration and ripeness. On the palate full bodied with lots of sweetness stemming from the high alcohol. Impressive on the first 5 seconds but finishes short. Ripe aromatics but quickly tires at least my palate. Can't see this going well with food, but if you like mass, try this.

  • A totally non-compromising effort which almost has to be cut out of the bottle. Dark, perhaps a bit brooding, massive, powerful and intense are all words that describe the first impression of this effort. Still it could also be described as "elegant", if looking at the close to perfect balance and very nice integration. The nose is massive and dominated by vivid and abundant dark cool fruit. The palate is full throttle with very nice integration between its different components. Served to the right type of food this is a very food friendly wine. A stunner!

  • Trelio with the fellas (Clovis Ca.): Here comes the Oooze Monster! Saturated purple, blackberry color....soaring nose of crushed wild berry fruit, white pepper, lavender florals, meat, tar. Huge and rich in the mouth, power, yet balanced. Dark berries, licorice, smoky asphalt(not as much as older Alban), dusty white pepper spice, kirsch liqueur. Just an amazing complex, mouthful of tasty!

  • Best Reva I've ever had! Wow this is supple, rich and expansive on the palate. So in balance everywhere, sip after sip, and it does not alter.

    Some Revas have just been overwrought and imbalanced, like I was sucking the wine through a charcoal briquette. Not this time. This has all the fruit and structure in perfect balance. I'm being conservative with a 95, may go higher.
