Expert Reviews

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

Good medium red.  Plum, redcurrant, tobacco and a whiff of camphor on the nose, with a faint green quality building with air.  Lush and supple, showing the slightly horsey, leathery quality typical of this property's wine.  Nicely light on its feet, though.  Finishes slightly dry, with a fine dusting of tannins.
