90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2010

($16; made from vines that are reportedly 50 years old) Vivid ruby. An expressive, mineral-accented bouquet displays blackberry, cherry cola and smoked meat, with suave floral and spice qualities that gain strength with aeration. Juicy and nicely focused, with precise dark berry flavors and silken texture. The spice and smoke notes linger on a long, sappy finish. This will benefit from a bit more bottle age or a little air. (Fine Estates from Spain, Dedham, MA)

Amazing wine!

We did not even need to decant the wine prior to drinking. It has a fabulous color and has just enough weight to it...perfect for a chilly evening. We drank it with manwich and mac & cheese! But it could just as easily gone with a filet. We had the 2007 vintage, but I am sure 2008 is equally as tasty.
