Press & Reviews
Beautiful, bright fruit with blueberry and hot-stone character. Medium body, integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Very refined, fresh and subtle. Drink or hold.
Deep ruby. Menthol, dark berries, ripe red cherry and oaky vanillin aromas and flavors are complicated by hints of coffee and black pepper. Multilayered and very dense, but strikes me as less perfumed and less graceful than the 2011 Taurasi. Finishes very smooth, long, clean and fresh. No shortage of power here, but manages the neat trick of never going over the top.
