This wine is very highly rated by just about all the pros, but I confess that to me it came across as fairly green and herbal. Definitely well-made, with an appealingly seamless mouth feel and attractive ripeness, but the overall flavor profile - ripe berries with a strong herbal and wet, woody feel - just isn't in my comfort zone. - HK 2014-12-07
