Expert Reviews

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2011

($65; 15% alcohol; a blend of 35% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 25% malbec and 5% cabernet franc, from 40-to-60-year-old vines planted at high altitude) Medium ruby-red. Dark cherry, currant, licorice and minerals on the nose, plus an intriguing whiff of goat cheese. Suave, sweet and juicy but extremely unevolved, with pungent dark berry and floral flavors given great energy by perfectly integrated acidity. Still youthfully tight but already fills the mouth with perfume. Finishes extremely long and aromatic, with suave, building tannins, a suggestion of espresso and a wonderful light touch. (Southern Starz, Stamford, CT)
