Wine Enthusiast 12/2007

Though quite dark, spicy, smoky, fragrant and seductive, this is a very flavorful wine. Citrusy acids underscore flavors of grapefruit and orange, but the core of the wine is straightforward, pure and ripe berry. It's not nice to fight the fruit with oak; the aromatics are beautiful.
