International Wine Cellar 87
"Deep red. Pungent aromas of redcurrant, cherry, tobacco and vanilla, with an herbal overtone. Round and silky in texture, offering modestly concentrated red fruit flavors that pick up a smoky nuance with air. Finishes with gentle sweetness and soft tannins, leaving a smoky, meaty note behind."
Wine Spectator 86
'This traditional red is plump, offering flavors of dried cherry, tobacco and cedar, with notes of herb and warm brick, slightly thick tannins and a spicy tobacco finish. Drink now through 2014." - TM
