Expert Reviews

89-91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998

Ruby-red. Sweet aromas of dark berries, shoe polish and flowers; has a distinctly eau de vie-like sappy quality. Inky dark berry fruit is framed, and currently kept under wraps, by firm acidity. Structured and intensely flavored, with lingering fruit outlasting the ripe, suave tannins. An extraordinarily impressive second wine.
