You are unlikely to find a more extracted, dark, inky purple wine than this; the glass stains the instant the wine makes contact. A pleasant, perfumed aroma, somewhat floral in nature, lots of dark berry fruit cover the palate, some element of a phenolic or resinous note gives it texture. At around $17 I am feeling good; if I had paid the full whack, I might not be so happy.

    March 18, 2010 - Very dark, inky wine, decanted for 1+ hour and it needed it; very big, dark fruit and oak, some chocolate; started out tight, and got better with some time. Interesting blend, great wine if you find it for a good price.
