Expert Reviews

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

Full, saturated bright ruby.  Restrained but captivating aromas of black fruits and minerals.  Big, sweet, broad and mouthfilling, with terrific purity to the dense flavors of black fruits and licorice.  Really builds and spreads out on the back half, finishing with suave tannins and lingering dark cherry and mineral perfume.  Utterly seamless, highly concentrated wine with captivating sweetness, but there's nothing over the top about this beauty.
