91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2005

($55) Bright ruby. Scented aromas of cherry, currant, cedar and tobacco, with exotic oak spices emerging as the wine opened in the glass.

This cuvee includes all of the estate's best fruit in 2002-i.e., there's no special PS bottling. . (European Cellars, Charlotte, NC)
