Expert Reviews

85-87 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998

Very good deep red. Redcurrant, raspberry, plum and spicy oak on the nose. Supple on entry, then a bit disjointed, with some unresolved acidity giving the wine a slightly tart quality. A rather gentle wine of modest ripeness and concentration, not to mention thrust. But not at all overextracted. Finishes with gentle tannins.
