Decanted: Vinturi

Cost: $15.99 (BC Liquor Store)

Date Tasted: September 2, 2009

Tasting Notes: The appearance was concentrated purple. The nose had hints of caramel, minerality, and smoke, The palate had very slight sweetness, chalk, vanilla, and plum with a good dose of tannins. The finish was warm and long.

Overall this wine had a distinct nose, was thick and fairly well balanced with good complexity. A very nice wine for a good price. A great recommendation and would do well with any BBQ. HC
