ExcelsuS is stylish and well-structured with a remarkable concentration of fruit and tannin. A densely colored, ruby-hued red with garnet tones, this austere wine offers an opulent bouquet that hints of plum, black currant and bell pepper.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Herbal notes of thyme and tomato match up with black cherry and vanilla in this dense red, striking a pleasant balance of dusty tannins, acidity and rich texture. Drink now through 2018. 150 cases imported. -BS  (Oct 31 2013)
