90 Points Wine Spectator -Bright dark red. Aromas of black raspberry, sassafras and licorice complicated by a hint of leather. Supple and sweet but juicy and tight, with a very fine-grained texture. Not yet complex in the mid-palate, but the wine's graceful minerally back end suggests it will evolve well. Still, the tannins are not as smooth as those of this estate's Vigna Manapetra bottling.
