Winemakers Notes: This wine is the deepest crimson, almost opaque in colour. It displays great intensity, complexity and harmony on the nose. A prevalence of floral notes, especially rock-rose and heather as well as warm cedar hints from its time in oak. Spices such as pepper, with an undertone of curry, as well as some mineral notes are also in evidence. On the palate it has a lively attack, with balanced acidity, and robust and distinct tannins. Red fruits and spices, especially pepper, come to the fore during tasting.
97 Points, Wine Enthusiast - "This is a hugely rich, yet approachable wine. It’s powerful, bold and ripe, and concentrated both in tannins and texture. All the elements are there, linked by firm tannins and freshness from berry acidity."
93 Points, Wine Spectator - "A chiseled, floral style, with notes of violet to the lively raspberry, plum and black fig flavors. Very fresh and juicy, showing peppery and sanguine accents on the elegant, crisp finish."
