96(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - February 2013

Bright red with a pale rim.  The still-closed nose reluctantly releases aromas of red cherry, sweet spices, aromatic herbs and coffee.  Dense, rich and fleshy, with ripe red cherry, tobacco and forest floor flavors given shape by harmonious acidity and smooth tannins.  The very long, slightly chewy finish shows a peppery chocolatey persistence.  This is developing at a snail's space and might last another three or four decades in a cold cellar, but while its tannic structure is noble and impressive, I'd probably want to check in on it again in five years' time to see how the fruit is holding up.
