Tasting Notes:

In view denotes intense and brilliant ruby red color. The nose is perceived highly expressive ripe plums, cherries, strawberries with hints of spices and nuts. The palate entry is sweet, good concentration and volume, firm tannins that will give longevity.

Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:

91 pts Stephen Tanzer’s IWC
Bright, dark ruby. Sexy aromas of currant, raspberry, mocha and licorice. Plush, rich and seamless, with concentrated red berry flavors complicated by truffley herbs and smoke. Very nicely balanced blend with a big, broad dusting of tannins and excellent length. High in alcohol but not at all hot; in fact, this is downright shapely wine. (I should note that a second bottle, rating 89 points, showed a somewhat stronger truffley, leafy quality.) An excellent value.
