Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

($40) Deep, dark red with a ruby edge. Heady, brambly aromas of concentrated dark cherry, cassis, black plum, chocolate, leather and asphalt, all brightened and lifted by a scent of fresh violet. Fleshy and sumptuous, with lively, very intense flavors of spicy, sour-edged dark berry and plum fruit. Savory, almost salty finish features firm, powdery tannins. For the long term.

Still vibrant, beautifully made wine. Lovely nose, ripe fruit, integrated tannins, smooth, long finish. Not over extracted, plum, licorice, pepper, tar.
