Who doesn’t like a deal? When the offer came to buy this for the whopping sum of about $12, I could not resist and bought a case. Earth, smoke, blackberry, coffee and smoke scents open to a fully mature, soft, medium/full bodied wine that ends with spicy, black cherries and a hint of dust in the tannins. I would drink this over the next 3-5 years. It’s not a wine for aging. But for this price, it’s a steal. It’s being offered by multiple merchants all over the country.

Still deep in color, with scents of coffee, smoke, licorice, plums. This concentrated wine is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, the same assemblage used in the 2005. The opulently textured finish ends with licorice, chocolate, black cherries and hints of blue fruit. I prefer drinking these wines on the young side to retain their upfront, ripe, lusty fruit qualities.

Fully mature, with licorice, cooca, truffle, vanilla, cassis and blackberry, this richly textured wine is at its apogee. I’d drink it over the next few years before it starts to fade.

My last bottle of this wine offered licorice, coffee, black raspberries and juicy plums with earthy notes. Still round and supple in texture, there is no tannin to be resolved, The wine finishes with juicy black fruit, chocolate and licorice. Aged in 100% new oak from a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine paid dividends from its under $20 price. I'd drink it sooner than later to retain its fruit and freshness.
