88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - October 2007

($120) Inky purple-red. Sweeter and riper on the nose than the Gallina, with even more obviously overripe aromas of toasty oak, menthol and cherries macerated in alcohol.

Offers a very lush, tactile mouthfeel, with obviously high alcohol and very ripe tannins. As impressive as this may be, a glass or two might be enough for me.
