4.5 stars "Color: bright; "

"This dark ruby-colored wine exhibits medium body, excellent ripeness, and loads of charm and finesse. The black fruit character is well-displayed along with toasty oak and low acidity. Its hallmark is elegance and finesse as opposed to power and structure. Nevertheless, it possesses such good balance that I suspect it will drink well for 12-15 years." Best 1999-2011

4 stars " Nose full of dark fruits, chocolate and coffee. On the palate, full-bodied and tasty with a long finish."
