Valadorna 2008 Red Blend

95 Points by Robert Parker:

This Merlot-led blend is sourced primarily from the Valadorna and Capraia blocks, which produce the estate’s most complex and mineral-based expressions of this variety. The blocks are located within the cooler part of the estate, naturally irrigated by the stream that undulates through it, and feature sandy brown soils and lower yields than typical. These blocks are often the last Merlot blocks to ripen on the estate. 750 ML

Description

Details

With a dark ruby color, the 2008 Valadorna showcases aromas of dark Valrhona chocolate, roasted espresso beans, cedar, lead pencil shavings, and herbal floral notes that are balanced with a mineral and earth-driven character. On the palate the wine extends a dry and firm profile of juicy black plums with hints of spent coffee grinds opening up to a supple and savory mid palate which lingers.
