This smelled hot. A glance at the label confirmed it: 15.1%! Pass the Advil. But for all the alcohol it also has a big nose of berries, vanilla/oak and fresh herbs. Full bodied, big and sweet with good tannins to balance. Long finish. It's a crowd pleaser for sure, but in the big wine arms race I fear that subtlety, nuance and character is going the way of the USSR.
Hard to tell how this will develop in the cellar. Too hot young = too hot old.
Big, hot, overpriced.
My $50 would be better spent on another bottle of Purple Angel or a good entry level Brunello or Bordeaux.
