91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2004

Bright, youthful red-ruby. Very ripe, complex aromas of black fruits, violet, exotic spices, licorice and humus. Then hugely full and sweet in the mouth, but with a faint greenness. Finishes with big, slightly rustic tannins-less fine-grained than usual for this estate. A classic wine from a hot year in which the ripening came in a rush.

Member Notes

Very earthy.... and SUPERB!!
12/03/2000
by timothylin_10023
Grassy and earthy taste with powerful hints of herb and mints. Full-bodied and consistent from start to finish. Long, really long lasting and refined tannin. Bought one for $100, GOOD BUY! #9 on Winespectator's Wine of the year 2000 list.
