91 Pts. James Suckling

 

Attractive nose, good complexity, red fruits like raspberries and cherries well accompanied by touches of spicy and floral tones. Well balanced acidity gives this wine juicy. Medium bodied, rounded and soft with a long and pleasant aftertaste. It is a wine to enjoy now but it will improve in the bottle.
