This is one of those Merlots that keep you coming back for more. It’s lush in blackcurrant, cocoa, coffee and spicy fruit flavors, wrapped in soft, creamy tannins, and is well oaked. Has just enough acidity to finish clean and vibrant.
A well-ripened Syrah with lots of plump fruit. Although it’s dry, the plummy coffee and chocolate flavors are sweet in fruity essence. Feels plush and soft in the mouth, with a long, berry-and-spice finish.
The name is a little bizarre, but this is a pretty good wine. Shows a dark color and rich, deep blackberry, currant, plum and leather flavors, with a touch of unsweetened chocolate and smoky oak. Good now with steak.
This is a strongly flavored young wine. There’s nothing subtle about the blast of blackberries, cherries and currants, of the sweet, smoky oak. The tannins are pronounced, giving a dusty astringency in the mouth. Should develop for 2–4 years.
