Wine Spectator: 92 points to Kairos 2010

92 points to Kairos 2010 in Wine Spectator‘s December issue. Hereby the tasting notes:

“Rich and chewy, this medium‐to full‐bodied version is under­scored by a note of smoky bacon fat and offers an aromatic profile of plumped cherry, dried marjoram, black licorice and cocoa powder. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Croatina, Cabernet Franc and others. Drink now through 2025.”
