Hints of herbs and tobacco on the nose lead to flavors of ripe blueberries and blackberries.
96 points, Wine & Spirits (Dec. 1, 2011): “…fat with fruit… layers of detail…”
94+ points, Wine Advocate (Dec. 2012): “…fruit is deep, rich and enveloping…firm, focused tannins…has power to burn. With time in the glass, hints of smoke, crushed rocks and tar come to life, adding even more intensity and grip.”
93 points, Wine Enthusiast (Dec. 1, 2011): “The blackberry and black currant flavors have an umami, protein tanginess, like beef tartare…”
91 points, Wine Spectator (Nov. 15, 2011): “…firm loamy earth, dried berry, cedar, tobacco and sage notes that are wellproportioned…”
Food pairing: enjoy with a wild game with blueberry sauce or luxuriously rich carbs such as pasta with mushrooms and caramelized onions with a touch of thyme.
