“A profound red with purple hues. Prominent notes of wild berries and vanilla, mixed with a delicate hint of wild mushrooms on the nose. Intense tannins that grab the palate yet structured and smooth with a pleasant acidity.”
89 points (´11), Wine Spectator:
“Shows a sinewy, meaty character, as well as dried berry and wild cherry flavours. Mocha and dark currant accents linger on the rich, sanguine finish.”
