93+ POINTS Robert Parker: An outstanding wine of exceptional complexity  and character. “…flows across the palate with notable finesse...subtle, understated (...) that impresses for its silkiness and polish. Deceptively medium in body, the wine has plenty of underlying depth and serious structure. Sweet red cherries, tobacco, dried flowers and sweet herbs are layered into the finish. This is a fabulous showing from Mocali.."  (April 2012)
