STOP reading right here and run out and find this wine!!! Not convinced? This wine was recently reviewed by the Wine Spectator and given an 89 score. I am not given to being swayed by other’s ratings but this one, if anything, is underscored! This wine is big in every way right on opening with a huge bouquet of dark fruit. It smells rich! In the mouth this wine is just as full with loads of body and flavor and mouth feel.
With a little air time, which isn’t necessary for this elegant creation, it is so full of flavor and if you ever wondered what “plush” tannins were like; this is it! This is just a nicely made, elegant wine. After a half hour, I was blown away by an unexpected blast of mint. Nice!!!
It finished velvety, and long–the finest tannins I have had yet! At the listed reference price of $18, this wine is a bargain BUT–Sam’s Club has it for under $13!
Stock up NOW and raise many glasses!
