89? Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2004
($82-$95) Bright ruby-red. Distinct port-like notes of surmaturite on the nose: roasted plum, kirsch and roasted nuts. Fat, lush and chewy, with very sweet, porty flavors of chocolate and animal fur. Impressively rich but a bit lacking in vibrancy. A bit over the top for this taster, showing signs of incipient oxidation; fans of extreme ripeness will like this more than I did. Finishes with building dusty tannins.
