Critical Acclaim

"Probably a sleeper of the vintage, the medium to full-bodied, pure 2008 reveals notes of almond paste intermixed with black currants, sweet cherries, caramel and mocha as well as an attractive texture and density. Consume it over the next decade. "
91 Points

"With its solid dark tannins wound around ripe black stone fruits, the wine shows an almost sweet character in its richness. The classic acidity of the year powers through the tannins and the fruit, giving greater complexity."
91 Points

"Full ruby. Sexy aromas of spicy blackcurrant, espresso, licorice and toasty oak. Juicy and penetrating, with lovely floral lift and a solid spine to the dark fruit, mineral and coffee flavors. At once more intense and better balanced than the young 2007, this conveys a deceptive impression of lightness. Finishes with a menthol freshness and firm but harmonious tannins. Range 88-91."
