Moderately dark purply red, fresh nose of raspberry and a whisper of fennel. Intense on the palate, with very lively acidity,bright raspberry flavors, and a splendid wave of fine tannins framing a lengthy finish. Begs for flavorful food.
90 Points-Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar “Deep, bright red. Musky redcurrant, cherry, licorice and herbal aromas, plus a suggestion of candied flowers. Sweet, sappy and assertively tangy, with a strong bitter cherry flavor. The firm, gripping finish lingers with good spiciness and clarity. I'd like to come back to this in a year.”
