Vivid ruby. Showing the same wild, slightly feral character as the previous wine, with scents and flavors of dried red fruits, game and smoky herbs. Finishes on a note of bitter cherry, with firm grip and lingering smokiness.
International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Rating: 89-92 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 130, January/February 2007. Dark red. Bright raspberry and strawberry aromas accented by subtle woodsmoke and licorice. Silky, pliant and juicy, with fresh red fruit flavors supported by gentle tannins. Finishes tangy and persistent. This will have early appeal.
