(2009 Vintage) 88 points Wine & Spirits: High-toned cherry and strawberry fruit ride above this wine's ample texture. There's a touch of bitterness in the tannin to balance the fruit, finishing clean and tight in its youth. Decant for braised rabbit or other gamey meats. (Apr 2011)
Wine & Spirits(2009 Vintage) Light, bright red. High-pitched aromas of sweet red berries, rose and spicecake. Light in body and fresh, with no fat and a tangy edge to the moderately concentrated strawberry and raspberry flavors. Finishes firm and slightly dry, with no obvious tannins and decent persistence.
