Expert Reviews

93+ Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2011

Full ruby-red with a purple tinge.  Crushed cassis, blackberry, violet, cedar and graphite on the very fresh, complex nose.  Juicy, spicy and penetrating, with lovely harmonious acids providing great clarity and cut to the black fruit and graphite flavors.  Still youthfully closed and very mineral.  Finishes pure and extremely long, with very fine tannins.  This may yet turn out to be the wine of the vintage, but it will require patience.
