Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2011 Klima red is a blend of 60% Kotsifali (aged for 12 months in two-year old French barrels) and 40% Merlot (aged for 12 months in new French oak). On opening, you will not have to worry about what Kotsifali is because this is all about the oak. Underneath, however, there is some structure here, grip on the finish and backbone. The mid-palate is quite elegant. This improved as it aired out, becoming more vibrant and sometimes piercing through the oak overlay. The texture became more caressing. There isn’t a lot of concentration, but it should drink nicely with another 6-12 months in the bottle. At the moment, it is too tight, but it should shed tannins fairly quickly. It may age a bit, but it likely lacks the mid-palate concentration to reward long aging, so let’s take that in stages. There were 5,000 bottles produced. Drink now-2019  (Apr 2014)
