"A medium-full bodied wine showing intense berry and spice aromas. The palate is long with fine tannins,offering juicy plum and blackberry fruits, with notes of clove & pepper."
"91 pts ... Bright purple. Vibrant, highly perfumed black and blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of Indian spices and potpourri. Sweet, seamless and concentrated but light on its feet, offering sappy blueberry and cassis flavors and a suggestion of allspice. The very long, energetic, floral finish is framed by supple, harmonious tannins. This suave wine delivers remarkable value, showing the power and finesse of plenty of Shiraz bottlings that sell for two or three times the price."
