Intense notes of black berry fruit blended with oaky touches and delicately spiced. Full and fleshy on the palate, the structure of this wine is based on elegant tannins. Very good ageing potential.
Wine Spectator 89 points - A round, fleshy style, displaying cherry, raspberry and mineral flavors. A tad exotic, with echoes of sweet fruit and oak spice on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 150 cases imported.-BS

Vinous 89 points - Good bright medium red. Cherry, raspberry and rose petal aromas are accented by pepper and spice notes. Supple and moderately intense, with good floral lift to the flavors of red fruits, spices and herbs. Dusty tannins are on the light side but show a slight dryness owing to the wine’s modest buffering material.
