I had the 2011 at a restaurant in Cancun about 7 months ago and rated it 8.6. This one much better with vanilla, fully ripe dark fruit, a balanced structure and moderate finish. Pre-phylloxera root stock at a reasonable price. Enjoyable!

Firm structure and prominent lift. Fruit profile is a little dried out. Tight and a little narrow on the palate. May progress with time.

Fruity but with a hint of...spice? Very light and crisp.

Lighter bodies than most, but very smooth and flavorful. Would drink again with or without guests.

Lots of chocolate/mocha on the finish...light tannins. Would be great with roast pork!
