Expert Reviews

85? Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2007

($169) Deep ruby-red. Slightly musty aromas of dark berries, pepper and nutty oak, with a hint of vegetility lurking.Sweeter on the palate than the nose suggests, with syrupy dark fruit flavors compromised by veggie notes and an animal character. Rather clumsy-and not squeaky-clean. Finishes with dusty, drying tannins and a cloying sweetness. Recent vintages of this once-superb wine have been very disappointing.
