Expert Reviews

94 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012

Good medium ruby.  Ripe, slightly high-toned aromas and flavors of cassis and chocolate, lifted by cedar and minerals.  Then more dark berries and minerals in the mouth, complicated by a candied violet nuance.  Not particularly large-scaled in what is a generally exotic, very ripe vintage, but intensely flavored and very well delineated, offering an enticing combination of ripeness and energy for the year.  The long finish features a suave tannic backbone and repeating notes of dark berries and violet.
