Sommelier Journal

  • By Ben Narasin
    December 2009, (See more on Sommelier Journal...)

    (Ovid Napa Valley) The dark, blood-red color mesmerizes with its deep glimmer; the intense bouquet seduces with pomegranate aromas, dancing with red fruits, dark plum, and cherry behind a thin veil of licorice. For a native of California or perhaps Tokyo, the nose may call forth memories of Sweet Osmanthus flowers, similar to ripening apricots. Although the aromatic intensity does not carry through fully to the palate, elements of mocha and dark cacao lead to dark-cherry notes, blending with dusty spice, graphite, and tightly wound tannin in a well-structured wine with a rich chocolate finish.
