90 Points - Robert Parker
"...it has a ripe, well-defined bouquet with blackberry, black olive, cedar and sandalwood. The palate is well-defined with plump black toasty fruit on the entry, good acidity and impressive structure towards the cedar-infused, fig-tinged finish."

Deep black/red in color. Truffle, forest floor aromas inter-mingled with cigar box and lead pencil notes. The palate shows juicy, rich red and black fruits, vanilla oak flavors and savoury, lingering tannins on the aftertaste. Pair with rich meat dishes, grilled lamb chops and truffle pasta.
