95 Points Decanter

91 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

(Aged for 24 months in American oak): Vivid ruby. Cherry-vanilla, mulberry and smoky oak on the nose. Juicy and sweet, offering pliant red and dark berry flavors complicated by vanilla and peppery spices. The gently tannic finish features a bitter cherry skin note and lingers with good energy and sweetness

Seducing deep cherry red colour. Great complexity of aromas reminiscent of coffee and tobacco. On the palate this is a lively wine with a smooth texture, well-balanced tannins and good acidity. Its good structure assures a long bottle-life.
