95 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013
Saturated ruby-red. Sexy, inviting aromas of smoked meat, brown spices, blueberry and brown sugar, lifted by a floral perfume and pungent minerality. Initially tight and savory in the middle, with bright acidity keeping the fruit under wraps, but showed increasing suppleness and sweetness as it opened in the glass. As much red fruit as black in style, thanks to the iron element in the rocky soil and the cooler growing season. Finishes broad, smoky and very long, with suave tannins totally buffered by mid-palate stuffing. A beauty.
