Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

($90) Deep red. Expressive aromas of dark cherry, blackcurrant, Indian spices and smoky herbs. Round, supple dark fruit flavors coat the palate, sweetened by suave vanilla and cola qualities. Gains firmness on the focused, long finish. This could use some time to stretch out but is already quite impressive.

Transparent crimson. Straightforward ripe fruit that seems to belong more to the traditional bottling than special cuvée camp on the nose. Nice wine with real vivacity and ripe fruit and harmony but it reminds me more of some of the best straightforward traditional bottlings than a special cuvée. Masses of alcohol on the finish…. 80 year old vines on average apparently.
