87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November 2009

($23) Medium red. Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas are a touch brooding, with notes of dark chocolate and black tea adding complexity. Fleshy and deep in dark fruit flavors, with dusty tannins adding grip. Would I have guessed this to be Beaujolais? Finishes with chewy cherry and dark berry skin character and good persistence. This could handle richer foods with ease.
