90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March 2012
Ruby-red. Complex, smoky bouquet of dried cherry, dark berries, herbs and underbrush, with a peppery overtone. Spicy, penetrating blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are given spine by tangy acidity and show very good depth. Closes with gentle tannic grip and refreshing bitterness, leaving smoke and cherry pit notes behind. All of Lapalu's wines come from Ecocert-certified organically tended vineyards and get a very small dose of sulfur at bottling time.
