Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

($44) Dark garnet with ruby highlights. Enticing nose of clove, white pepper and violet. Fresh and vibrant flavors of mint and anise give way to dark cherry fruit. Finishes with a hint of bitterness. Not as dense or concentrated as some previous vintages from this property, but this is a polished and persuasive wine nonetheless. (Palm Bay Imports, Boca Raton, FL)
