Wine Advocate Rating:
My Strength Rating: 6.5
Appearance: garnet in color with a lighter ruby edge around the glass.
Aroma: Nice little peppery spice, hint of earth and dark berries on the nose.
Flavors: To me I like the spice-box profile. I’ll call it a pepper mill mix because, it is like having pink peppercorn, green and a little black peppercorn on the taste. To me there is this little hint of tea or an herbal tea like taste. I think it happens when it first hits my tongue.
The berries are lush in style. No bitter or bite from the berry notes. More like a boysenberry, bing cherry, and plum. There is a mild earthy style with a little oaky presence on the finish.
Overall mouthfeel is soft, flavorful, and pleasing to the palate.
I have to say that I like this bottle of Loui better than their Napa Valley bottle that I reviewed yesterday. The Sonoma County bottle is about $7.00 a bottle cheaper to boot.
