"A dense, rich, full-bodied, meaty, almost Mediterranean style of wine...possesses loads of black and red currants, notes of roasted Provençal herbs, licorice and loamy soil undertones in a dense, full-bodied, supple and silky style." -Robert Parker. "This wine is a bold but well-mannered blockbuster that serves generous helpings of dark color, spicy aromas, concentrated flavors and a luxurious dry texture. It needs full-flavored, rich food to accompany it, and will deliver a lot of pleasure under those circumstances. Best to drink now through 2020."
