Ripe and deeply flavored, concentrated and well-structured, this full-bodied red offers a complex mix of black cherry, wild berry and raspberry fruit that's pure and persistent, ending with a pebbly note and firm tannins. *Wine of the Year, Top 100 Wines of 2011* (JL)
Yummy. So delicious and beautiful with aromas of plums and cherries with flowers and dark chocolate. Full body, with fresh acidity and firm tannins and clean finish. Delicious and bright. Drink now or hold. I know it was the Wine of the Year from the Spectator. And damn good.
Bright ruby. An aromatic nose combines raspberry, candied licorice, pepper, violet, herbs and spicy oak. Sweet, chewy, fine-grained and juicy, with good sappy energy intensifying the red berry and cherry flavors. The persistent, gently tannic finish offers very good palate coverage and an echo of licorice. (ST)
At $52, this wine is not an everyday partner at the supper table, but it has plenty of distribution and plenty of character, and is, to our way of thinking, a good wine list choice for special meals in special restaurants. Its first aromas of ripe red cherries combine with background notes of tart black cherries, hints of cappuccino and intriguing notes of smoky oak. Rich and fairly supple on the palate, a bit more open and accessible than most of its vineyard-designate mates, it is accordingly more suited to the nearer term than they are. *One Star*
