93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2004

($139; from an especially steep part of the Bussia Soprana vineyard) Fresh medium red color. Cool, chalky aromas of red cherry, licorice, minerals and chocolate.

The longest of these 2000s, finishing impressively chewy, firmly tannic and palate-staining. Transcends the vintage. These vines were picked earlier than those used to make the basic Bussia Soprana wine.
