Polished tannins envelop notes of cherry coulis and raspberry tart interwoven with elements of aniseed, violet and olive. It is all bound together with balsamic acidity and plenty of spice, with touches of hot stone to refine the finish. It can be drunk until 2029.Find out

Passion between magazine covers:
half a century of wine criticism and journalism.
Wine Spectator is an American lifestyle magazine that focuses particularly on wine culture, giving ratings to certain types of wines. With 15 issues published annually, its content includes news, features, profiles and general entertainment pieces. Each issue also features 400 to over 1,000 wine reviews, consisting of ratings and tasting notes. In addition, the magazine presents the coveted Winery of the Year awards to the 100 outstanding wineries each year.
In line with other major wine publications, Wine Spectator rates wines on a 100-point scale. The magazine’s policy states that its editors review the wines in blind tastings, ensuring an unbiased assessment. Wine Spectator’s current critics, including Bruce Sanderson, Tim Fish, James Molesworth, Alison Napjus, MaryAnn Worobiec, Kristen Bieler and Aaron Romano, are experts in the art of wine. In the past, prominent names such as James Suckling have been part of its team of critics.
Founded in 1976 in tabloid newspaper format in San Diego by Bob Morrisey, Wine Spectator was acquired three years later by Marvin R. Shanken, its current editor and publisher. In 1981, the magazine introduced its Restaurant Awards Programme, which analyses the wine lists of restaurants at three levels: the Award of Excellence (basic), the Best of Award of Excellence (second level) and the Grand Award (top award). Today, more than 3,500 restaurants hold one of these awards in recognition of their carefully selected wines.
