96 pts Robert Parker - Very intense and vivid colour. The aroma shows great complexity, with plums and red fruit aromas, spicy notes of black and green pepper and elegant notes of the local Mediterranean bushes. Strong mineral character and smoked meat aromas. Very elegant in the palate with great freshness and firm structure with velvety tannins. It is subtle with intense fruit flavors and impressive acidity. Great persistence in the palate to last many years in bottle.
