*2010 Vintage*: The scents are very forthcoming with blueberries, pomegranate and black liquorice. The medium-bodied palate has balanced acidity, but it is a bit tannic. Great length and good value. Nov 2012

This wine has everything going for it, nice smell, nice oak, vanilla, a bit fruity but there is one thing seriously wrong. It is SO SOUR!!! I'm talking face contortingly sour. If you like sucking on lemons this wine is for you, otherwise I recommend only using this wine as a marinade as the acid will help soften the meat. I can't scroll below 75 otherwise I would.
