Rich, explosive wine that bursts onto the palate with a blast of ripe fruit. Generous notes of toasted oak, flowers and nuts follow, but everything is woven together in a fabric of unsual brilliance.
Wine Spectator - 97 See more...
The graphite, toast, spice, candied berry and coconut aromas are seductive, and the class and finesse hold your attention. Picks up mineral and citrus flavors.
