Tasting Notes

Good full red. Musky aromas of maraschino cherry, chocolate and minerals; very ripe and pure. Then fruity and suave in the mouth, with plenty of black cherry sweetness to support its firm tannic structure. Subtle minerality gives definition to the sweet, long finish.

Score: 90/93Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com, March 2010

Exuding ripe, effusive cherry, raspberry and boysenberry aromas and flavors, this is underscored by a vein of mineral. There's great tension, balance and structure, so give this time to show all its facets. Terrific length. Best from 2013 through 2025. 20 cases imported.
