This wine is heavy and deep, with a structure and great finesse. The 2006 vintage is strong in structure with undertones of minerality and vibrant fruit. This is a very elegant, tender wine.
Burghound (BH): 92
" is surprisingly open and expressive with a beautifully layered nose of raspberry, cherry and red pinot fruit nuanced by hints of spice, earth, minerals and a dried herb component that introduces intense, balanced and pure flavors that culminate in a serious, mouth coating and well built finish where the tannins are solid but not rustic or aggressive...."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 90-92
"Sweet, dense and rich but at the same time bright and aromatic, with lovely inner-palate energy. Broad but light on its feet, with a sappy character to its subtle flavors of red fruits, spices and minerals. The finish coats the teeth with flavor."
