Huge, ripe black fruits lead on the palate, black currant, plums, and elderberry, with milk chocolate and espresso adding depth on the mid-palate. This requires red meat and fat - try it with lamb chops with béarnaise butter. Highly Recommended. 93 points.
This needs at least five years to loosen up and let the fruit flavors free.
Simple meat courses such as filet mignon or pork loin are good pairings that will enhance the flavors of the wine.
This has great cellar potential, but if you can't wait, pair it with a well-marbled strip or ribeye. Very Highly Recommended (95-97).
Tannins have some raw power, which should integrate with a few years in the cellar. Drink with New York strip. Recommended (88-90).
