    Winemaker's Notes:

    Very bright color; elegant nose with black pepper and floral notes. Medium-full bodied with very soft tannins and good balance. Great length and fruity after taste.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark and winey, but not heavy, with lots of ripe, fleshy plum and blackberry fruit layered with white pepper, iron and violet notes. There’s ample toast, but it’s well-integrated, with a long finish. Drink now through 2012.

    90 Points

    Terrible. I kept hoping it would improve with more air. It didn't. We dumped half the first bottle. Hoping it was just a bad one, I opened the second one. It was just as bad as the first. Two sips later it went down the drain. don't waste your money.

    On the glowing recommendations of those who bought the 2006 Reserva I tried the 2007. I did not get beyond the first sip. It was vinegary and horrible, and it all was poured down the drain. I would not even use it for cooking. I have 2 more bottles to try when I can get my courage up, and will gladly report if I find a more positive outcome.

    Very good. Even somewhat cab-ish.

    For exotic taste lovers only. We really enjoy this one but it may not be for everyone. Strong black pepper with lingering finish.

    Light and fruity on the nose, even a little tutti frutti, and certainly pleasant. A hint of tar on the palette on first blush, leading to more fruit: strawberry jam and blueberry followed by berries. I can see where some might be a bit surprised at the finish with heavier tannins than one might expect. The bottle I tasted was very fresh with ample tannins to hold up for two, even three more years. I can see how some might not like this, especially those not expecting tannins than will settle and become finer over time.

    Decent- a bit acidic and a little one note as well. Maybe a bad-ish bottle but still very drinkable.
