89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2006
Bright medium ruby. Blackberry, cassis and violet aromas lifted by a peppery nuance; rather reduced. At once penetrating and pliant, with good intensity to the dark fruit and floral flavors. But I don't find the sweetness or breadth shown by a barrel sample a year ago. Finishes juicy and persistent, with firm but fine-grained tannins. Give this reduced wine plenty of aeration if you plan to serve it anytime soon.
