Expert Reviews

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2011

Good deep ruby-red.  Complex aromas and flavors of currant, raspberry, smoke, musky dried herbs, sexy oak tones and minerals.  Rich, broad and lush; big, rich and sweet but with an edge of acidity giving lift and grip to the middle palate.  At once sexy and serious wine, finishing with broad, horizontal tannins and excellent length.
