Review

96 Points

Deep dark ruby with purple reflections and a delicately bright rim. Fine oak nuances on the nose with black fruit and a savoury bouquet of delicate liquorice and tobacco. On the palate the wine shows some complexity with ripe cherries and nougat, taut, integrated tannin and a mineral touch on the finish. There is very good length, promising development and sure potential for ageing.
