95(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2003

($270; old-vines garnacha with a bit of cabernet from the Dofi vineyard added to bring more structure) Bright ruby-red.

Then explosive in the mouth: huge, suave, deep and layered, with powerful yet somewhat cool black fruit, mineral and graphite flavors. This really expands to fill the mouth. Wonderfully concentrated wine that's not at all heavy. Finishes very broad and rich, with noble tannins and great persistence. Still a baby, and likely to merit an even higher score six or eight years down the road. (The Rare Wine Co., Sonoma, CA)
