Tasting Notes


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate , Jeb Dunnuck - Oct 2014

It’s clearly an outstanding wine and has pretty, complex aromatics, excellent concentration, medium to full-bodied richness and lively acidity. There’s a slight Burgundian feel here, and I suspect it will be reasonably approachable in its youth, with 10-12 years of overall longevity.
