The nose lays out intense aromas of bright red fruit, such as wild strawberry and redcurrant, followed by lovely, pungent notes of anise and cinnamon plus subtle hints of cocoa powder. In the mouth, a lengthy, slow-paced progression is accompanied by superb structure, an emphatic acidity, and dense, well-integrated tannins. The finish is nicely fruit-laden.
This is a solid red with blueberry and currant character. Full body, with silky and chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Tangy acidity with a citrus undertone. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese. Better in 2015.Score: 92.
