  • Still quite tannic and forbidding even from half bottle, so I think this will come round and when the tannins recede (hope they will) benefit from the fruit that is undoubtedly there. Cassis, dark cherry, cedar, vanilla.

  • Soft, dark, fruit with a streak of soft tannins and acidity. This is definitely a modern style wine, but I've always found this bottle interesting and there aren't exactly a lot of Carignan based wines around.

  • Dinner at Terrace Italia, Sao Paulo, Brazil

    Wine definitely requires decanting for 3-4 hours. While pop and pour immediately shows characteristics of dark chocolate, black cherries with nose slightly muted, it remained acidic and somewhat tannic. With each passing 20 minutes the wine improved to ultimately become a silky creamy balanced wonderful complex wine

  • Decanted and returned to bottle 1.5 hrs. Started with light tannins and a petroleum nose, now chewy hints of tobacco with dried plum. Pleasingly dry.

  • We decanted the wine for twenty minutes before we poured the first glass. It was dark ruby in colour and threw some sediment. The wine showed ripe and cooked fruits, blackberry, prune, black currant, cherry, spices, rosewater and chocolate on the nose. On the palate the wine showed cooked fruits, prune, raisins, cherry, blackberry, raspberry, spices, black pepper, liquorice, chocolate and roasted notes, paired with medium-plus acidity, medium-plus to high tannin and very good length. The wine was slightly bitter and tasted alcoholic. A full-bodied, concentrated wine that improved with air, though the alcohol remained out of balance. I would recommend decanting for at least one hour.
