Expert Reviews

95-97 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2014

(this wine had been racked to tank on the morning of my visit):  Full, bright ruby.  Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of cassis, blackberry and licorice, with a brightening note of minerality.  Silky, dense and large-scaled but extremely primary and imploded, showing outstanding cut and lift to its dark berry and mineral flavors.  A juicy minty note gives additional lift to this seriously plush, concentrated wine.  Finishes with huge but noble tongue-saturating tannins and outstanding length.  Great potential here.
