Particularly dark crimson. Warm and lively on the nose. Very sweet, polished start. Quite nicely done and a very rewarding lunchtime wine but this doesn’t belong with the big guns.
Jancis Robinson MWScore: 16.5/20
Pretty nose, with crushed berries, mineral and flowers. Medium-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a fruity finish. Yummy barrel sample
Wine SpectatorScore: 88-91/100
This Merlot-dominated wine displays a dense ruby/purple color, soft berry fruit intermixed with mocha, and hints of white chocolate, herbs, and spice. It should drink well for up to a decade or more. (Tasted once.) Wine Advocate.April, 2010
