(60% malbec and 40% bonarda): Bright saturated ruby. Dark berries, plum, mocha and chocolate on the very ripe nose and palate. Sweet, lush and seamless, but with a hint of minerality and solid acidity enabling the wine to maintain balance and freshness. A mouthfilling and very successful blend, finishing broad and long, firmly tannic but not at all dry.
Nice drinking wine.......

Not spectacular but a very nice drink at the end of the day. Very good the second day too, in case you don't finish the whole bottle the night before. Great with a spicy pepperoni pizza. Might have to look for another case of this one.
First bottle did not live up to my expectations
By Que3731, April 15, 2013
I tried the first bottle of my case about 6 weeks after it arrived. Based on my past experience with Wines aquired via WineAccess, this wine did not live up to my expectations. While there were no problems, it was very closed and tasted alcoholic; for sure it needs some serious bottle time at this point. About four hours after my first glass, I tried a second and it was much better with a smooth front and a dry light oaky finish. It will be several months before I consider opening up number 2.
