RATINGS

97The Wine Advocate

...offering up aromas of mulberries and cassis mingled with orange zest, exotic spices and rose petals. Full-bodied, seamless and complete, with an immensely layered, fleshy palate, it concludes with a long, penetrating, saline finish. Such is its fruit concentration that its rich, powdery tannins are almost imperceptible.

More restrained, ripe and exceptionally fresh aromas are comprised by notes of beautifully spicy red and dark berry fruit, violet, sandalwood and exotic tea nuances. The succulent, round and incredibly intense large-scaled flavors are not denser, but they are patently more powerful while delivering stunningly good length on the very firm and youthfully austere finale.

TYPE

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
