Expert Reviews

...offers up scents of tar, smoke, spices, plums, licorice and tobacco on a mid-weight frame. The wine offers plenty of length and complexity in a relatively accessible, harmonious style. With time in the glass pretty notes of roses emerge adding further complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2022. Rating 92 - Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate#185 (OCT/2009)

Vintage Condition

A classic and stress vintage that matched almost perfectly the blueprint for an ideal vintage. A large crop required bunch thinning but a moderate and consistent summer was followed by perfect autumn conditions – dry and temperate. A suitably incident free harvest followed.
