Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!
A solidly structured, full-bodied, deep garnet wine which shows intense aromas of iris, roses, spices and ripe red fruit. The impressions on the palate are fleshy, velvety and tender, finishing with a firm acidic crispness. The wine approaches maturity in most vintages after six to ten years.
"Dark and smoky, with toast and vanilla notes leading the way for velvety-textured blackberry fruit followed by notes of cocoa, dark licorice and mineral on the finish. Drinks like a Vosne-Romanée. Drink now through 2009."
