Critical Acclaim

"Bright red-ruby. Perfumed nose of sour red cherry, violet and bitter chocolate reminded me of Burgundy. Pliant and very fresh, with good fleshiness for this wine. The suave tannins are nicely supported by the wine's mid-palate stuffing. This very gentle wine suggests a well-judged extraction. This will drink well early and should be a Pomerol bargain, especially on a restaurant list.
