Expert Reviews

94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011

Deep ruby-red.  Knockout nose combines black cherry, lavender, potpourri spices and graphite minerality; high-toned and slightly liqueur-like.  Then dense, seamless and vibrant in the mouth, with firm acidity giving outstanding energy to the dark fruit, floral and mineral flavors.  Really spreads out on the back end and stays a while.  Brilliantly delineated, complex wine with superb cut and penetration.
