    Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 112, January/February 2004 ($40) Deep red. Roasted raspberry, strawberry, pepper, spices and exotic dried herbs on the nose. Suave and lively in the mouth, with red fruit and garrigue flavors framed by ripe acidity. Spicy and perfumed in the mouth, with enticing but restrained sweetness. Finishes very fresh and persistent, with fine-grained tannins. Delicious already.
