93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2004
Medium amber-tinged red. Highly nuanced nose combines plum, marzipan, leather, flowers, spun sugar and nutty oak. Concentrated, juicy and bright, with lovely sweetness buffered by firm but well-integrated acidity. Gripping and tightly wound; in fact, this quickly went into a shell in the glass. But this perfectly combines the sweetness of the 2000 and the structure of the 1999. Finishes with big, chewy, ripe tannins and notes of leather and tobacco.
