A deep purple-ruby color. A complexity of aromas with red fruits, blackberry liqueur, touches of incense, and notes of mint and cedar sap. The palate is enriched by a suave and intense nose of rich mineral tension that is characteristic of limestone terroirs. A fresh finish and an extended length reveals a mature aging aptitude. Pair with bold flavored dishes such as a beef ribs, entrecote or ragout with a rich sauce.

Wine Advocate 92

The 2014 EL red is mostly a 55/35 blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Merlot aged for 24 months in 50% new French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. This is dark purple in color and subtly aromatic. It promises to be a blockbuster from its appearance, but it is instead very refined and sophisticated. Elegant and showing gorgeous mid-palate finesse, it lingers beautifully on the finish. Nuanced just slightly with some herbs and beefy hints around the edges, it demonstrates complexity too. It does have some sharp edges, both from tannins and its good freshness. Alternating between delicacy and persistence, power and freshness, this is more than it sometimes seemed at first taste. It may yet improve in the cellar. It may be my favorite EL yet, but there is a little prognostication here, so let's be a little conservative for the moment and see where this goes.

Deep violet-red in the glass, this wine has aromas of dark plums and violet. Hefty tannins come on strong, but they are tempered by bright acidity. It offers flavors of blackberry, black cherry, vanilla, toasted hazelnut and nutmeg. The lasting finish feels a bit grippy at first, but bold acidity powers through.

Why Bottlenose Product Management Works

Research has found that the descriptions in wine labels, images and reviews can actually alter people’s emotions, even encouraging them to pay more for a bottle. Your online customers can't hold the bottle in their hand, so if your website doesn't provide complete, precise details about the products you sell, you're missing sales. The name of the wine and price is just not enough, people want to know more, and that's where a lot of online wine and spirit shops fail.

Gathering content for all of your products and uploading it to your website is a time consuming chore. You didn't get into this business to do data entry. With Bottlenose Product Management, let our team of trained experts handle putting your products online. Building on an extensive database of information that is constantly growing, products are described clearly and completely, including detailed images, descriptions and critic reviews. Your customers get a wealth of product images and information with every search which gives them the confidence they need to make a purchase quickly.

Additionally, Bottlenose saves you even more time by making it easy to use the information in your brick and mortar store with our shelf talker export feature.

Let Bottlenose Product Management keep you focused on growing your business, not searching, copying and pasting.
