|Denise Pereira rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Full body, but lacking complexity
In 2009, this wine held the #76 spot on Wine Spectator's Top 100 list.
There's a sense of elegance to the well-defined, concentrated flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and plum, followed by notes of sage, dark chocolate and tobacco leaf on the long, powerful finish. Drink now. Smart Buy. Score - 90. (Kim Marcus, www.winespectator.com, Oct. 31, 2009)
