89 points "Herbal at first, marked by green notes that at times seem dominant. Yet the fruit is plump and mouthfilling, with sour cherry flavors that build in intensity on the mouthwatering finish. Drink 2008–2015. The color of this wine is pretty deep, with highlights of purple in the garnet color. The nose shows notes of lavender, cried cranberry, black tea, tobacco and blackberry. On the palate this wine is well balanced, with the flavors unfolding all the way to the slightly tannic finish. This wine is interesting when you first pull the cork but it really opens after an hour in a decanter. You could age this wine for up to ten years in a proper cellar." Best 2008-2015
