Style: Red Wine

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2012
(aged in a combination of French and American barrels, 30% new): Bright dark red. Expressive aromas and flavors of plum, redcurrant, spices, tobacco and sexy oak are complemented by a smoky mineral aspect. Juicy, spicy and nicely delineated, expressing clear varietal character and well-judged oakiness. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins and good verve.
