(From 2008 Vintage) Color: ruby red with orange reflections. Bouquet: clean and intense, with complex hints of spices, licorice, vanilla and cherries. Flavor: full, rich and persistent with a great, elegant tannin structure and finish.
DecanterRating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Powerful with a brooding dark fruit nose and smooth palate. Quite astringent on the finish, but has a good weight of fruit behind.
Wine SpectatorRating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Wine Spectator on 12/15/98.
