Expert Reviews

88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2009

($29) Full red-ruby. The nose of plum, blueberry liqueur, mocha and smoky oak shows some distinctly exotic suggestions of roasted fruits. Then sweet but firmly built, with a fine-grained texture and solid mineral underpinning to the red berry liqueur flavor. Finishes with substantial building tannins, but the wine's sheer sweetness and fine-grained texture give it early appeal. As crop levels here are carefully controlled and strict selection is practiced to ensure the high quality of this superb property's grand vin, this "second wine" is unusually sweet and concentrated.
