#2 Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004
Deep and intense black purple color. Explosive nose of red fruits, blackberries, black cherry and raspberry, mixed with complex notes of toasted vanilla, cedar, black chocolate and coffee. In mouth, the wine is only density, volume, concentration and fullness. The present and round tannins give the wine a solid and well-structured character. The finish is long, velvety and silky.
