Tasting Notes

Strong anise and earth notes blend into an elegant, expressive and intense mélange of red and black fruits followed by supple yet muscular flavors that display perhaps the best acid/fruit balance of any wine here. There is length to burn and I especially admired the finishing complexity. A terrific effort with excellent potential. Drink: 2010+

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (13), January 2004

Earthy, almost sweaty. Rich and lively. Quite expensive. Dried cherry notes. 2010 - 2020
