Those who remember how thinly disappointing many Bull’s Blood wines of the past were will be shocked to discover how deep and reassuringly bull-like this blend of Kekfrankos with Merlot and the two Cabernets is. The intense fruits have been harvested at the cusp of ripeness, then oak-aged with enough sensitivity to ensure that the dark urgency of the black fruits emerges limpidly and clearly, pointed up with a little leafy freshness. On the palate, this is clearly a young wine with a future: deep, dark, dense, fine-sewn and detailed, with ample juicy poise and incipient structure alike. The finishing extracts are very promising, too. The bull is back.
