Most of the write-ups I’ve read on this wine call it a “fruit bomb”. They ain’t lyin’. There is so much dark glorious fruit on the nose it is mesmerizing. Dark cherries, currants, plums and raspberries waft up into my senses like a blanket, filling my nose with warmth.
The first sip is tantalizing and warm, and a bit astringent with firm yet supple tannins creating a backbone. From that first taste on, it is simply a heavenly journey. It has a lush and smooth flavor that wraps around your tongue like a mink coat. From the back label – “This wine is a ticking time bomb of absolute deliciousness. Bright, soft, lush but capable of delivering a punch.” I agree 100%.
Thanks Herb! Another one out of the park!
