Deep purple red with my grandmas spice box that she used to baked cookies with on the nose. Seriously, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove which morphs into black pepper, all of which sits on a palate of mysterious dark fruits. Really a fun wine to keep my nose buried in. In the mouth this wine is rich, dense, and full of similar ideas of which the nose is willing to share. Amazing acidity and great spice, with tannins that coat and yet act as a framework to the wine more than an act unto themselves. This is a rich wine, that I would think in 5yrs would be even better, integrating the rich dark fruits with myriad spices. Fun wine, and seriously worth the money.

Dark purple wine, rich in color, showing rich and aromatic notes of black raspberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, wait, no, mocha, spice box and black pepper. Basically, think exotic and dark! In the mouth, the acidity immediately leaps out at me, then slowly ebbs away leaving rich dark spice and mineral flavors. Gripping, but not overwhelming, tannins, blend well into this powerhouse of a wine. I see great potential for this wine in the future.
