More About This Wine
94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2008
($100; 90% carinena and 10% garnacha) Inky ruby. Highly aromatic nose displays smoky red and dark berries, botanical herbs, potpourri and licorice. Sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors boast superb concentration and energy, with fine-grained tannins adding support and shape. Becomes more tangy on the finish, which delivers a whiplash of luscious, spicy dark berries. This wine was made by Ester Nin of Clos Erasmus from a single 1.8-hectare vineyard of 70-to-100-year-old vines. (Eric Solomon Selections, Charlotte, NC)
