Reviews 97 points Wine Advocate "It has been blessed with a sensational nose that boasts quite astonishing delineation and precision, fabulous mineralite. The aromatics are far more detailed and enthralling than the 2007 tasted alongside. The palate is beautifully structured, virtually symmetrical with filigree tannin, with a gentle crescendo in the mouth towards an effervescent finish with hints of orange peel. Simply effortless. (NM)" 96 points Burghound "...almost black with a notably ripe multidimensional nose of black cherries, spice and earth that complements well the broad-shouldered and impressively scaled medium weight plus flavors that are robust and overtly muscular where the finish retains a sense of robust power and stunning length.
