Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 96(+?)

($355) Good full red. Pure aromas of dark, wild raspberry, candied cherry, smoke, game and mint, all lifted by an ineffable floral perfume. Wonderfully rich, fat and voluminous, combining great sappy cut with an utterly spherical, silky texture (yes, my note says this is possible). The rising finish features great palate-staining length, a chewy impression of extract and endless subtlety. This extremely intense wine shut down in my glass, but was once again spectacular when I retasted it a few hours later.

Mid crimson. Lustrous look. Very firm and manly - the butch side of Pinot?! Firm and striated with iron. Straight-backed stuff, no sweet soppiness here. Very rich and spicy and alluring. Juicy and sumptuous and, ok, there's still a hint of oak but this is such wonderful stuff it's a real treat to be tasting it. So neat and long and although it is not luscious, it is not painfully dry. So rich yet structured. True spice, not tarty stuff. Only 500 cases made.
