91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May 2009

Good full medium red. Complex nose melds raspberry, redcurrant, humus, smoke, leather, tobacco, minerals, spices and fresh herbs. Sweet and supple but with bright acids and an exotic suggestion of white fruits keeping the mid-palate fresh. There nothing thick about this juicy, intense, very young wine. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins. This should continue to evolve for at least another decade. (I should note that this third bottle was a charm, as my first two, though seemingly firm and youthful as well, showed a slightly musty, fungal quality that gave the finish a dry edge.)
