93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011

Vivid ruby.  High-pitched, pure, floral-accented aromas of red berries, Asian spices, blood orange and potpourri.  Concentrated, lithe and precise, offering juicy raspberry, cherry and rose pastille flavors and a seamless, silky texture.  Finishes sappy, sweet and very long, with resonating floral and spice notes.  This sexy wine is delicious right now.

I'll give the last bottle another couple of years to see what happens.

The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
