Wine Spectator ReviewRated 92-94Ripe, spicy, fleshy and intense, with a rich mix of earthy, loamy currant, herb and black cherry fruit that's focused and persistent.Wine Tasting NotesDeep, almost purple crimson color. Concentrated aromas of cassis and plum lead to flavors of dark berry fruits, ripe currant and cocoa, framed by a slightly toasty oak. This incredibly rich and full-bodied wine shows well-structured, silky tannins and a long, velvety finish.
