92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2009

($25) Deep, orange-tinged pink. Potent aromas of dried redcurrant and cherry, with complicating notes of pungent herbs, white flowers, anise and minerals. Smooth, fleshy and gently sweet, offering firm red berry and blood orange flavors and tangy notes of white pepper and quinine. Turns chewier on the finish, with the floral and herbal notes repeating. Offers superb complexity and should be very adaptable at the table, especially with strong cheeses or grilled fish. (Rosenthal Wine Merchant, Pine Plains, NY)
