94pts - James Suckling
"Transparent and so clear with crushed berries, dark chocolate, walnuts and hazelnuts, as well as subtle wet earth. Medium to full body, beautiful fruit on the center palate and a fine, long and persistent finish." -James Suckling
The aromas of sweet French oak and espresso get more complex with every swirl of the glass, unveiling black plum, ripe raspberry, and violet aromas. The wine is full-bodied, dense, deep and chewy with flavors of black raspberry, plums, roasted herbs, and mint.
A nice ribeye steak or leg of lamb.
