Great density and structure with deep ruby red colour. Defined presence of mature dark fruits (berrie´s marmelade) and cassis with perfectly integrated vanilla notes (coming from the best selection of French new oak barrels). The wine is mouth filling, velvety and robust at the same time. Dense. In the mouth there are layers of ripe black fruit, black cherries and ripe plums, beautifully integrated with the smokiness typically from Syrah. Mouthfilling and lengthy. In all ways, unique wine that has become a cult wine.

Wine SpectatorDense and layered, with lots of fig, black currant paste, mocha and black licorice flavors, all supported by a muscular structure. The long, dark finish has lots of power in reserve, but shows fine harmony already. The best-balanced vintage so far of this powerful Syrah. Drink now through 2013.

Wine EnthusiastMinty, creamy and as oaky as can be. Coconut, sawdust, carob and other barrel-based aromas steal the nose, with secondary black fruit and thick tannins composing the palate. This is a ripped, high-alcohol, almost soupy Syrah that in some people's eye may seem overdone and too woody. But the fruit is of unquestionable high quality, and if you give it time to air out you'll get the best results.
