"Deep red color with violet hints. The nose reveals dried plum and dark fruits, exotic spices, hints of violet and chocolate. Fruity flavors; well balanced, elegant tannins. Excellent with roasted and smoked meat, seasoned dishes." -- Importer
Bright deep ruby. Blackberry, licorice and spicy oak on the nose. Moderately dense and concentrated, with brisk acidity framing the black fruit, licorice and herb flavors. Finishes fairly intense, with notes of chocolate and pepper."- Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"Dark berries and cassis dominate the nose with hints of mint and chocolate. Nicely balanced, it is gentle on the palate with layers of texture, followed by ripe, supple tannins. Excellent with roasted and smoked meat, seasoned dishes. " - importer
"Purple-colored it exhibits a classy perfume of smoke, mineral, violets, and black currant. Layered and nearly opulent, it has plenty of succulent black fruit, good focus, and solid length. It over-delivers for its modest price. Very good value."- The Wine Advocate
