Wine EnthusiastIf the Liandra is Bratasiuk's Côte-Rôtie, this is the wine he calls "more Hermitage." And it does have some iron-like, minerally notes to it. But there's more New World suppleness and flesh as well, featuring lush plum and cassis fruit, some hickory-smoked bacon and layers of coffee and cream on the lengthy finish. Approachable now, but should be even better in five years and will easily last for 10-15.

Wine SpectatorPolished. Remarkably open in texture and focused in flavor, fine-grained tannins surrounding a pulsing core of blueberry, plum and wild berry flavors that linger effortlessly on the ever-so-slightly hot finish. Best from 2008 through 2020. 500 cases imported.
