Average critic rating : 89.67 points



If it were not for some prominent tannins in the finish, this wine would merit an outstanding score. If the tannins sweeten, it will merit a higher rating. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet black cherry, scorched earth, and camphor notes, a sweet, rich mid-palate, medium to full body, and excellent purity as well as depth. The tannins kick in in the finish, but there is a lot going on here in a positive sense. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025. Wine Advocate.February, 2009



Wonderful aromas of sliced ripe plum turn to citrus fruit and flowers. Full-bodied, with fine yet chewy tannins and a solid core of fruit. Tight and structured. Best after 2010. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2009.



Dark and smudgy. Very evolved but far from unpleasant nose. Really quite charming, if not very ambitious, fruit. A good early drink.www.jancisrobinson.com, 21 Jan 2010
