Huge, ripe black fruits lead on the palate, black currant, plums, and elderberry, with milk chocolate and espresso adding depth on the mid-palate. This requires red meat and fat - try it with lamb chops with béarnaise butter. Highly Recommended. 93 points.
Loads of flavors explode, starting with black currant and boysenberry, then black cherry, with vanilla, unsweetened cocoa, tar, and nutmeg. Drink with well-marbled ribeye. Highly Recommended. 92 points.
There is more blueberry pie than cherry pie in this fruit-forward, silky Merlot. Coffee and chocolate add depth and interest on the mid-palate, through the finish. Drink with a good bone-in strip. Highly Recommended. 92 points.
The four different grapes work together, instead of fighting with each other, to create a robust but still food-friendly wine. Drink with smoked beef ribs. Recommended. 88 points.
