Rated 92 Points by James Suckling
The wine has an opaque cherry red color. Intense and highly concentrated aromas, ripe black fruit with hints of jam and marmalade, smoky oak, spicy hints of clove and pepper. Strong end, especially licorice and fennel. The palate is tasty, fleshy, with ripe and very rounded tannins. Nice hints of very well integrated oak, with sweet notes and a spicy and mineral background with a long aftertaste. Pairs well with all kinds of red meats and game, spicy stews and cheeses.
