  • Finally a bottle where the cork didn't break but the wine was nasty. I hope it was a one off as I have a few left.

  • Again another bottle with a bad cork, deep maroon in the glass, the nose was dark fruit, the palate was dark berries and chocolate, a nice finish.

  • Wine has improved since I tried a bottle last year. Deep Maroon in color, fruit on the nose, the palate is blueberry, plums, some cedar, and hints of chocolate on the nice finish. Most enjoyable.

  • Decanted through a vinturi after fighting with a bad cork. Nose was nondescript. Color was medium maroon. The palate was blackberries, black plums, spice and a touch of chocolate. A nice decent length finish.

  • Medium intensity purple with a hint of ruby red on the rim. This 85% Malbec, 10% Petit Verdot, and 5% Tannat blend is dark and brooding but balanced by a layer of sweet, oak-induced spice. The nose is clean, with medium (+) intensity aromas of black fruit, sweet spice, bitter herbs, espresso and vanilla. The palate is dry, with medium (+) to intense flavors of black currant, black berries, and dark chocolate. The acidity is medium (+), the alcohol is medium (+) at 14.5% and the tannins are still medium (+), albeit smooth and rounded. The mouthfeel is smooth and soft. This is a medium (+) to full-bodied red, which is remarkably well balanced. The flavor intensity is medium (+) and the finish is pleasantly savory and medium (+) in length. It is in its optimal drinking window now, and is likely to stay at this level for at least another year or two. It paired nicely with grilled herb-encrusted lamb chops and sharp cheeses, but is approachable by itself. A great value at $35.00 to $50 if you can find it. 91+. IMHO, WS has consistently under-scored this and other wines from this producer and has failed to grasp these wines' aging potential.
