A deep crimson red with purple reflects. Black currant and cherry aromas, with hints of coffee and gentle woody nose. At first smooth and elegant, the wine soon reveals its quality tannins. Full-bodied, the mouth is flavoursome and the blackcurrant, coffee and liquorice flavours are persistant.
Vinous 90 points - Deep red. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of fresh red berries and flowers, with a mineral element building in the glass. Juicy and sharply focused thanks to a firm spine of tangy acidity, but the intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors also show a gentle sweetness. Takes a turn to darker fruits on the back, finishing with very good tenacity and supple tannins.
90-92 Points (Apr 2015)
