My first experience with this wine but I will seek it out again. Medium-full bodied, dark garnet color, firm and structured but nicely balanced and polished, aromas and full forward flavors of blackberry, red and black currants, dark plum, spice, mocha with a layer of cedar and toasty soft oak on a lingering tight tannin finish. Lots of life left in this ten year old.
RM 91 points.
Great accompaniment to cheese crusted baked eggplant parmiagan and grilled flank steak.
