Wine SpectatorA spicy base of cedar and tobacco leaf is layered with subtle notes of damson plum, ripe black cherry and cassis in this supple red that's well-integrated and refined from start to the bresaola-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018. 250 cases imported.

International Wine CellarInky ruby. A complex bouquet offers red berries, cherry, rose and baking spices. There's a lively character here that reminds me a bit of ripe pinot noir. Juicy and open-knit, with gently sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and good spine. Finishes with gentle tannins and very good clarity, repeating the spicy note.

Wine EnthusiastBulky, dark, saturated and leathery on the nose, and then a little salty and edgy in the mouth, with a streak of zingy acidity along with roasted, tangy, thick blackberry flavors. Really good for the price but not as expressive, ripe and flavorful as the 2007 Salia or the higher-end Finca Sandoval; drink now through 2014.
