Wine Spectator: This generous red delivers ripe plum and currant fruit, with notes of toast, licorice and loam. Firm tannins impart structure, while the juicy acidity keeps this lively. Drink now through 2018. 14,000 cases imported.
Dark, dense color. Intense complex bouquet that confirms its ageing in quality oak: powerful aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants with a depth of toasted notes that blend with very fine oak. Pleasantly full bodied with concentrated flavors. Clearly a wine of character and structure but with a nice, fleshy texture. Classy and elegant with good potential for ageing.
|A splendid bottle to marry with savory fish dishes such a fresh tuna in spicy tomato sauce, refined delicatessen products (chorizo, salami), all kinds of beef (roasted, stewed or grilled) foie gras, duck, partridge, game and mature cheese.
