"Packed with sweet fruit, but also structured to balance. The wine shows a satisfying mix of acidity and sweet chocolate flavors.

"Aromas of blueberries and dried flowers, with hints of fresh mushrooms. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a racy, silky textured finish. Very fine. Exceptional from here. Try in 2016."
"This is rock-solid, with cocoa, fig and blackberry notes rolled together, framed by dense but polished structure and all weaving nicely through the lightly grippy finish. Best from 2013 through 2022. "
