    Winemaker's Notes:

    Oozing elegance from the outset, with rich toasted aromas telling of elegant wood, accompanied by black- and red-berried fruit, abounding in ripeness and finesse. A warm attack and a dense, supple mouth-feel which overflows with plenitude.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Balanced and elegant, this lovely red exhibits fresh black fruit flavors that are supported by ripe tannins and lively acidity, with notes of mineral, licorice and tar adding complexity. This isn't a blockbuster, but it's complete. Drink now through 2015. 2,000 cases imported.

    Bright ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of cherry cola and black raspberry, with notes of coconut and baking spices that gain power with air. A fleshy, smooth texture combines with deep dark fruit flavors that show a surprisingly light touch. Packs a solid touch but comes off almost weightless, finishing with excellent clarity and sweet persistence. This drinks very well now but will age on its balance.

    International Wine Cellar

    Smells slightly exotic and different from the norm; the nose offers baked black-fruit scents, lemon peel, rubber and Eastern spices. Pure and driving on the palate, with good acidity and woodsy, complex flavors of blackberry, coffee and licorice. Snappy and pure on the finish; drink from 2011 through 2016.
