95 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011
Opaque ruby with a bright rim. Highly complex bouquet combines candied cherry, raspberry, mineral and allspice, along with a suave floral component. Sweet, silky and dense, with sexy flavors of strawberry, raspberry and exotic spices. Deep in flavor but shockingly lithe, with suave, dusty tannins adding shape and grip to the very long, sweet, mineral-driven finish. This wine could do some damage in a grand cru Burgundy tasting.
