Brilliant ruby red with garnet reflections, fragrant perfumes of marascino cherry, cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla and anise. The taste is full and balanced with sweet and soft tannins that confer a good aromatic persistence.
Wine Spectator 91 points - Richly spiced, offering up-front flavors of melted licorice and crushed black currant, with hints of grilled herb and seared mushroom adding complexity. Well-balanced, showing bright, lightly tangy acidity and supple tannins through to the finish. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now through 2024. 5,000 cases made. AN
