96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004

Good full ruby-red color. Knockout nose of black raspberry, blueberry, coffee, truffle, smoke, wild herbs and mint. On the palate, a remarkably sweet, creamy, almost honeyed elixir of wild berries.

This should be rated XXX. This may well age well, but it's utterly irresistible right now. (Note to Turley and Wetlaufer: please release this wine at your earliest convenience.)
