  • Aromas of red berries, spices...vanilla, leather, chocolate and balsamic notes. Full-bodied and dry with dusty tannins. Tobacco and leather flavours with ripe fleshy fruit. Long spicy finish. Nicely done...drink within next few years. 90+

  • We had this with a roasted leg of lamb and it was fantastic! Probably one of my favorite bottles recently. And to think it was $15 at Costco??

    Deep ruby in color. Aromas of herbs (basil, rosemary), black pepper, spice, dark cherry. Flavors of blackberry, cherry, plumbs, raspberry, spice, black pepper, and some really nice herbal notes on the finish. Nice velvety texture.

    Excellent, wish they had more bottles when I went back to costco!

  • Deep red-purple with very high optical density and dulled by specular reflectivity. Strong intensity of aromas, with dusty fruits (plums, raspberries, cranberries, and some dark cassis), mixed red and black liquorice, and brambly dried forest floor with some clear but light oak notes that appear integrated. Decent complexity on nose. The palate is full bodied and rich, with a dry framework that has plenty of structured tannins and is dry. This yields a texture of even, polished elegance that shows some back end gritty grip to clean the palate. Flavours of ripe red berries on the attack, with sour cherry and cranberry underneath, providing tension and balance to the rich ripe fruits on top. The midpalate shows some spicy dried leaves and leather as the fruit becomes more dried in character toward the final transition. The finish finds some light, clean tobacco smoke and a mix of oak spices- dill, hazelnut, coconut, and cloves. Medium length on the finish, and overall, good if not soaring complexity with excellent intensity.

    This is a really nice wine. Enough depth to be beyond just a good value here, with decent complexity that requires some thought. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Tempranillo provides an international and modern flair, but still an elegant and restrained old-world styling is apparent here. At 10 years, this has plenty of legs for the cellar, and is just coming into a window of fine drinkability with plenty of freshness but nice integration. Excellent wine!
