I like this wine but it needs 2 yrs for the tannin to come in line with the spice and dry fruit character. Vibrant ruby with a midnite-garnet hue. Smells like a fresh bamboo spice box filled with clove, dried orange peel, pink peppercorn, toast and coffee bean. Warm raisins, red cherry and mint tea aromas linger on the surface. The mouthfeel is big and dry with gum clenching tannin that looks for parmigiano.Dried Corvina grapes make a great mix of bitterness while retaining the fresh acidity of red berry fruits like cherry and currants. Salty hard cheese or dark chocolate. Tasted Oct '11

Tasted Jan 2011. Had with a nice set of ribs, but nothing really stood out with the wine. A relatively basic wine with a touch too much acidity for me.
