An idiosyncratic blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon, 25% tempranillo and 5% zinfandel. Dark red. Smokey red currant and cherry on the nose, plus a whiff of pungent herbs. Bitter cherry and plum flavors are subtly sweet, with gentle acidity providing structure. Suave, silky and sweet on the finish, which features a strong note of cherry preserves. Very easy to drink.
Medium, slightly fading red. Chinese black beans, cherry, roasted coffee and mint on the nose. Firm and chunky, with bitter cherry, dark chocolate and espresso flavors. Seemed quite roasted initially but grew fresher on the finish which shows a sweet blackberry quality.
