Review from original list creator: "Oaky and reticent on the nose with notes of bay leaf and African violet slowly rising from the glass, along with hints of dried plum and kirsch. This is a fascinating wine. It is oaky but neither heavy nor sweet, well-fruited but with the oak continuously making its presence known. The texture is quite attractive. Soft tannins and bright acidity make for a refreshing drink, but then the tannins show a bit of cocoa-dusted dryness before the slightly roasted strawberry and plum-like fruit pops on the mid-palate. The fruit reaches for the finish before the toasty oak spice and a light pepper overtake it once again. I'm usually not a fan of assertively oaked wines, but in this case it works quite well. Find the right food and you'll have yourself a winner here - I recommend a fatty roasted pig. 89pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
