    May 9, 2010 - This has huge fruit on the nose. There is no question this comes from a hot climate and the grapes were allowed to fully ripen and then some. It is saved from being a "fruit bomb" by the addition of a little Mouvedre and Grenache, adding some citrus peel and spice. Fruits on the palate are dark and jammy. The palate also has dried orange peel, pepper, and a grain or two of cayenne, not the flavor, just the kick. It takes a complete turn on the mid-palate, throwing out cocoa and coffee, even as the fruit and pepper linger. The finish is long and really lingers, particularly the dried citrus peel. Tannins are smooth, acids a tad stronger and just slightly out of balance.

    March 7, 2010 - Cloudy dark garnet right to the rim. Delicate, perfumed nose with blueberry and plums. Soft and round with sweet black berry fruits and cedar wood. Reveals unpleasant metallic and burnt rubber flavours in the finish.
