Wine Enthusiast87-89 Barrel sample. Minty aromas and smooth wood show a New World character. The fruit is so ripe it borders on warm. There are tannins there, but not enough to structure the boundless fruit at this stage.

Wine SpectatorA bit lean but some good berry, violet character. Medium body, fine tannins, light finish. Bit lean.

James Suckling, 2006
