Critic Notes

Brilliant purple. Something a little 'singed' on the nose and then a hint of leafiness on the palate. Lots of tannin - pretty ripe tannin. Then very fluid texture with lots of juice. Pretty ambitious and persistent.www.jancisrobinson.com, 09 May 2009

Score: 17-/20Jancis Robinson

Grapey, with green coffee bean and dried spice character on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a pretty finish. Slightly hollow midpalate. Score range: 85-88. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2009.

Score: 85-88/100Wine Spectator
