...has enormous power that is mitigated by the taut, mineral texture and black-currant flavors.

93-94James Suckling

Dense and chewy with very firm and silky tannins. Full-bodied and powerful.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Lovely scented first impression of both black and red fruit and a touch of herbaceousness. Chewy, thick tannins, rounded and rich but fresh too.
