Wow! Purple, violet color. Hints of licorice on the nose with light tones of chocolate. Very soft subtle tannins. This is my first bottle of wine in our collection we've had that has an alcohol content of 15% or more. It was one of the best $50 bottles I have ever had. Need to pick up a case.

Enjoying this bottle right now. It needs more cellar time.

A little rough around the edges, with hints of Black Currant and a strong blackberry taste, with a soapy finish.

Simple nose, not a very complex pallate. Not that great of a Malbec. Perhaps the weakest Malbec I have ever had.

Horrible Malbec to me. I will probably never buy another California Malbec.

That's right I gave this wine a 50, because it was horrible. Never again.

Very young merlot with a fruity nose with hints of plum and cherry. Very big tannins. This wine needs some time. Ideal drinking window 2012 - 2015.

Hints of Tobacco and dirt in the taste. Very earthy yet leathery nose. Great bottle. I am sure I will buy another few bottles.

The nose was very peculiar with hints of vanilla bean and cherry. Very big tannins, left my palate dry. I can only imagine this will get better with age!

Strong taste of blackberries and vanilla. Vanilla on the nose. Very smooth tannins. Fruit forward wine. For a table wine its a do over.

This is a wine that grows on you. While it's not powerful, it does have some complexity and elegance. In the nose you'll find cherry, nutmeg and a hint of truffles. On the palate you'll find a well-structured wine with Merlot's typically soft chalky tannins, modest intensity and wonderful length, in which the nutmeg-truffle flavors, comes to the fore. This is a wine to drink now.

I think Matt T and nom de plume, hit the nail on the head concerning this bottle. I pulled the cork and expected great enjoyment. However, I was highly disappointed by the overwhelming taste of oak and dry sour bitterness. My bottle could have been very well corked. I only had one sip and returned for a different bottle.

Bottle was good not great. The Vinturi helped me, and I was very pleased afterwards. The bouquet was very intoxicating. Yet the taste was descent. I agree with other notes that 2006 was definitely a richer vintage.

Very strong initial taste. Very spicy, if interested in sweet bountiful taste this is not the wine for you. Second sip was pretty much the same. I would not recommend this wine.

The nose is intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas which start with hints of black cherry, black currant and plum followed by aromas of blueberry, vanilla, tobacco, licorice, cocoa, bell pepper, black pepper and mace. The finish is persistent with flavors of plum, black cherry and blueberry.
