Glows purple in the glass. This is such an enjoyable wine, though young. Ripe berry fruit flavors are pure and focused, couched only in a light cushion of vanilla. Balanced, harmonious and very pretty; drink 2007–2011. Imported by Paterno Wines International.
Like Spinal Tap, this wine turns the volume up to 11, packing in enough blueberry jam for breakfast on the Queen Mary II and enough cedary oak to build 100 saunas. It’s undeniably powerful and intense, and embued with a lush, creamy texture; the only question is how it will evolve. Drink it now and stand your hair on end.
