Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92

($65; includes 11% cabernet sauvignon) Saturated red. Highly perfumed bouquet of blackcurrant, dried cherry, woodsmoke, potpourri and subtle herbs. Suave and velvety on entry, gaining structure in the mid-palate and offering incisive red and dark berry preserve and bitter cherry flavors and notes of violet pastille and anise. The finish is sweet and penetrating, with very good closing grip and persistence. Lots going on here, flavor-wise, but there's also strong spine and youthfully gripping tannins that call for some time to resolve. At the very least decant this if you'll be drinking it any time soon.
