WA 91 IWC 90 Pts - Tasting notes - Intense cherry red color, nose - red fruit and oak reminding us of ripe fruit and licorice with a touch of toasted oak thanks to the French barrel.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2008 Pruno, from the estate’s younger vines, is a blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up a sexy bouquet of Asian spices, incense, cedar, mineral, and assorted black fruits. Super-rich, bordering on opulent, it has layers of succulent, spicy fruit, enough structure to support 2-3 years of cellaring, and exceptional length. This sensational value over-delivers in a very big way.
According to International Wine Celler - Deep ruby. Expansive aromas of fresh red berries, Asian spice and minerals, with a subtle floral quality. Silky and seamless, with sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and an exotic floral pastille note adding complexity. Fine-grained tannins add shape on the finish and fade quickly into the sweet fruit. This is delicious right now. Rated 90+
