($112) Bright medium ruby. Blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate and musky oak on the nose, with exotic hints of honeysuckle and jasmine. Sweet and succulent on the palate, but with a firm spine of acidity and a suggestion of citrus peel giving this creamy wine superb inner-palate energy. Complicated by an exotic suggestion of dried fruits. Finishes juicy and quite dry. With extended time in the recorked bottle, this showed a lush, broad texture and great sex appeal without any loss of shape. This and the Altamira impress with their elegance.Author: Stephen Tanzer
