External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Something akin to a backward Chateauneuf-du-Pape mdash; black cherry, pepper and layers of slate run through this medium-bodied young red. Just when you would expect the sweet ripeness of Garnacha to open the wine and produce a juicy finish, the opposite happens. The Cabernet, like a strict parent, seems to keep the Garnacha in check and the wine ends tight, although the flavors are long. Interesting balance of mineral, fruit and spice, I would lay this one down for a few years as it really improved with aeration. Tap into this one with a juicy rib-eye. Potentially outstanding.

Bright ruby-red. Black cherry, violet, licorice and crushed stone on the nose; hints at liquid minerals. Then tightly wound and lively, with intense flavors of black fruits, violet and minerals, framed by strong acidity. Finishes a bit youthfully dry-edged, with dusty tannins. This really needs a year or two of patience.
