Medium ruby in colour with medium+ intensity in the nose.

Positives: A very nice aromatic nose featuring carnations, peppers (red, black & white), nutmeg, cinnamon, blackberry, raspberry, plums & cedar. The taste isn't as pronounced as the nose, but that's not necessary a bad thing. The tasting notes are plums, raspberry, peppers (red, black & white), eucalyptus, cardamom, arugula with dandelion greens and young artichokes on the finish. Medium to full body, good acidity, medium to low tannins & high alcohol.

Negatives: The high alcohol is quite noticeable along with a bitterness.

Drink now on its own or pair with BBQ baby ribs.

Tasted: 27 Jan 12

Score: 8+/10, Value: 9/10, Total: 17.5/20
