This attempt at a superpremium wine is vivid and full of bright red fruits. Deep and tannic with fine acidity, it has all the components and potential of a competent cellar dweller. A minty flavor and powerful tannins grab the tastebuds and don't let go until the creamy finish. In the end, however, it is good but not classic.
