Wine & Spirits(From 2006 Vintage) Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09 When this wine is freshly opened, oak accents its pungent spice, while the silken cherry fruit is submerged below. Tasted a day later, the pointedly red fruit lasts far beyond the oak and its tannin, with a lingering perfume. This needs several years of age to show its best with rare prime rib.
