Mesquita Beautiful deep red colour, with a nice Champagne aroma together with vanilla notes from the french and american oak. Raspberries make the Rest. In THE mouth you will find a good balance between fruit, acidity And after taste. A Great choice considering price/Quality ratio. Buyit!

This Wine was a beautiful present from my Goods friend Anri. He likes me to try the best of Georgian wines, so I lucky enough to have him as my Goods friend. This Wine is very clear, with a tropical nose - small melon mostly - and a Nice, crispy, balanced and fresh mouth finish. You can easily drink too much!

bjwdad Good to hear! I love finding wines from countries/areas not generally associated with wine (at least in the US).

deep red and very fruity, feeling the green part of the berries on the back nose. On the mouth it is spicy, warm and has hints of chocolate and mouthfull of red berries. Quite a journey into Cotes du Rhone!

Considering that this was a 36 year old wine, I was pretty excited about it. As old as myself! When opened, I was deeply surprised by the fact that it was still brown-redish, deep and somehow enigmatically lovely. On the palate one could feel notes of raisinsm typical of Port wine, caramelized, with old barrique flavour, spicy, and a lovely vanilla after taste coming from the natural cork, who faithfully fulfilled its beautiful mission of letting us taste history. It was an unforgettable experience!

Shinny pomegranate colour. On the nose it is pure blackberry jam and on the mouth it is rather short, fresh, with hints of smoke/leather.

rckr1951 Hey Hugo - how are you doing? Haven't heard from you in awhile. The wine sounds good. '05 was good for the northern Rhone.

Dark ruby colour, typically Douro's blood. On the nose there are very interesting notes of chocolate and spices. On the mouth it delivers what the nose has promised, though somewhat acid and not a very long finish. Indeed a light red, modern and fashionable. Advisable for a nice talk, if you'd like to skip the food part. Cheers

I'm in loooove!! Such a powerful embracing colour with anm astounding fruity aroma finishing on the explosion on the mouth just reminded me of all the berries that I am missing for the last years. I find an interesting spicy/chocolate interesting character, wrapped up in a cigar leaf. Simply, a poem!

rckr1951 Isn't love grand. I wish their products were better distributed. I can find it online, but not with places that offer decent shipping rates.
