94 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2004
($57; aged in 50% new oak) Full red-ruby. Nose initially dominated by smoked plum, roasted nuts and black cardamom, but showed strong black raspberry fruit with aeration. Huge and exotic on the palate, with intriguing notes of caramel and hoisin sauce to go with the roasted plum and nuts. Like liquid silk in the mouth. Classic notes of grenache en surmaturite, yet this wine showed increasing freshness and structure as it opened in the glass.
