Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with rich fruit and some oak-tinged smokiness to the underlying red berry. There are subtlety and the wine does finish dry, but the drying properties suggest it will be better in a few years. A well-judged, well-structured wine, this carries its talcumulated texture like a bow of powerful bow ties. The flavors include dark chocolate, cedar, herb, olive and peppercorn, with a brooding elegance rare in reds from this appellation. This is a big wine, but not overtly over the top. A restrained and taut wine, with sonorous and spicy aromas, this tastes mature, herbal and brimming with green apple and melon. The flavors are fresh and nicely cut with acidity. The style is more herbal, green, then meaty, and the finish lingers. Very crisp and light.
