Biblia Chora Pangeon Areti Red 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep earthy slightly oaky and impressively spicy on the nose with layers of mint, turmeric, dried bay leaf and sweet gum adding nuance to the core of smoky black cherry and black raspberry fruit. Rich, slightly weight and yet polished on entry with plenty of density early on the palate that yields to a mid-palate that brightens with acids and gains good clarity. This is a fairly deep and powerful wine, with almost flamboyantly rich fruit buffering significant wood and fruit tannins. There’s lovely cut on the palate for a wine of this size and raspberry fruit that follows through to a supporting role on the long, mineral laden finish. Chewy, dense and rich, this still has such a wonderfully defined center. I’m digging this, even the finale with it’s notes of creamy, caramel oak. 91pts
