    "Cherries, redcurrants, and lovely sappy oak giving some extra dimension. Fine acid, but pleasantly plump on the finish."

    "Good full red. Tangy aromas of raspberry, cherry and licorice. Concentrated and intense, with a distinctly crunchy character to the raspberry and pomegranate flavors. Energetic, precise wine with considerable soil complexity and fine, ripe tannins, not to mention lovely delicacy. Very promising for this cuvee."

    Grade: 88-91 Points
