Beautiful aromas of white peaches, crushed rocks, candle wax, and lemon rind along with a touch of quince emerge from this medium-bodied, crisp, flavorful effort. Excellent acidity as well as a long finish suggest it will drink well for 10-15+ years. (93 pts)
Deep red colour, with purple hues. A nose of red fruit, cocoa and roasted aromas, followed by crisp mentholated touches. Hints of violet then appear, followed by blackcurrant and fruit of the forest. Full and smooth initially. The tannins are dense and lend good structure to the wine, which is full-bodied and opulent, although it is still somewhat subdued, which promises outstanding potential.
