This wine was recommended, but no tasting note was given. Score: 94. —Robert Parker, December 2002.
Very expressive and beautifully balanced, this is all in the details, from the palate-caressing texture to the vibrant acidity, finely meshed with flavors of black raspberry, plum, wild strawberry, candied citrus peel, honey and ground spice, accented by rich hints ofespresso, treacle and pastis. Drink now through 2025.—A.N.
