    Sight: Medium ruby with hints of purple
    Nose: Cassis Pate-de-fruits, spearmint, freezerburn
    Palate: Ripe, medium weight wine. Not overblown and not without acidity. Overall, as balanced as you can ask for at this price.

    March 17, 2014 - Weekly tasting group #111; A fully blind test with two whites as a starter. (@ AH): The bouquet is not very expressive, but there are dark berries, autumn forest and some dusty impressions. On the palate concentrated and juicy red as well as dark berries, some sweetness and menthol. Ok acidity and round tannin. Ok wine.

    January 29, 2014 - Interesting! Definitely not a South American fruit-bomb. Good start. Aromas anf flavours alternated between oaky, spicy, fruity (dark red to black), and balanced. This must be what they mean when calling a wine "disjointed". I think it will come together with time, though. It seems to have the acid, tannin, and overall balance to let some of this stuff smooth out.
