Exuberant aromas of plums, tomatoes and nutmeg, with a firm, understated structure of fruit and tannins. Elegant style. Great with lamb. For pairing with Bordeaux, look for the more refined and simply prepared cuts such as loin chops, rib chops and a rack of lamb. These classic dishes can be a divine pairing with Bordeaux. More aromatic, rustic and spicy preparations of lamb often call for a wine with a bit more of a chewy, rustic and herbal character.

Wine AdvocateProbably a sleeper of the vintage, the medium to full-bodied, pure 2008 reveals notes of almond paste intermixed with black currants, sweet cherries, caramel and mocha as well as an attractive texture and density. Consume it over the next decade.

Wine EnthusiastWith its solid dark tannins wound around ripe black stone fruits, the wine shows an almost sweet character in its richness. The classic acidity of the year powers through the tannins and the fruit, giving greater complexity.

Wine SpectatorRock-solid, delivering delicious plum sauce, raspberry and linzer torte notes rounded off by spice and graphite. The fleshy, enticing finish has good length. Drink now through 2015. 2,500 cases made.
