Expert Reviews

88 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2001

Medium red-ruby. Black raspberry, espresso and smoky oak on the nose. Supple and fairly dense, but with lovely vinosity. Some acidity yet to be absorbed. Just a suggestion of greenness. A rather serious claret with the structure to reward aging.
