Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Robust and powerful! Aromas of blackberry, black plum, leather, violet, and graphite. Full bodied with slightly dusty tannins, on the palate the fruit is slightly tart, with more leathery notes and a smoky finish. Enjoy with grilled or braised meats.
Elegant aromatic intensity with spiced and toasted notes. Luscious and vivid palate, with red fruit flavors and elegant oak notes. Tamed and expressive tannins and balanced acidity that provide a long quality-wood finish.
