About the wine

Tasting notes

Good deep red. Expressive nose of red cherry, minerals, crushed stone and high-pitched spices. Broad, sweet and fine-grained; really spreads out to saturate the mouth, but with terrific acid/tannin support keeping the wine fresh and alive. Very long on the aftertaste, with the red cherry character following through.

Expert review

A superbly complex nose that is one of the broadest in the entire range implicates a panoply of elements that range from spice to a mix of dark berries to earth to the sauvage and more. The seductively textured, refined and wonderfully rich middle weight flavors possess stunning length. This gorgeous combination of power and finesse display that highly attractive sense of underlying tension that imparts real vitality to the finish. *Outstanding*
