90 pts. Wine & Spirits: December 1, 2012
Fragrant with violets and black cherry fruit, this takes time to move beyond its clean lines toward something more emphatically earthy. Air brings a stoniness to the structure, while the wine seems blacker, with the assertive precision of a flamenco dancer’s heel.
88 pts. Wine Spectator: May 31, 2012
This focused red is subtle but harmonious, with well-integrated flavors of black cherry, toast, herbs and spice layered over fine tannins. Crisp and fresh. Drink now through 2014.
