Talking About the Wines:
-eRobertParker.com, The Wine Advocate, May ’11 gave 90 points to 2009 Gotim Bru. “Aromas of underbrush, brier, spice box, lavender, and assorted black fruits leads to a mouth-filling wine with good balance, some complexity, and 1-2 year of aging potential (not that there is any reason to defer gratification).”
