Tasting Notes

A notably more complex nose of violets, red berries and spice notes, especially anise leads to full-bodied and
generous broad-scaled flavors that possess a seductive mouth feel as there is superb dry extract which buffers the very firm
tannins and coats the palate on the strikingly long finish. This is a wonderfully harmonious, indeed to the point that the word
"Zen-like" comes to mind which will enable it to be approached young but as the extended drinking window prediction
suggests, the impeccable balance will enable this to live for decades. 96/2024+

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, May 2011

Good medium red. Highly complex, spicy aromas of raspberry, menthol, flowers, white pepper, spices and coffee bean. Sweet and penetrating, with superb intensity and definition to the pure red fruit and floral flavors. At once silky and weightless. Best today on the pure, subtle, rising finish, which displays wonderfully subtle but firm tannins and terrific grip, perfume and length. High class.
