Wine Review: If you can afford this wine, you will not be disappointed. This premier wine from Torbreck is excellent. This deep purple wine opens with a pleasant and inviting bouquet. On the palate, this medium to full bodied wine is well balanced, concentrated, and has explosive flavors. For a wine with this level of intensity, it also has an elegant side to it which makes it a bit more food friendly than the 2003. The finish is dry and quite prolonged. This is a terrific wine the will enhance any special occasion. The trait of a truly great wine is the need for more of it. I couldn’t get enough. Enjoy – Ken

Good wine ruins the purse; bad wine ruins the stomach.
