92(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2005
($132; from a high-altitude vineyard) Bright ruby. Very pure aromas of blackberry, licorice and minerals, further lifted by a floral element. Almost painful in its penetration on the palate, with high-pitched flavors of black fruits, menthol and licorice. This boasts terrific cut and structure, and palate-staining persistence. This rather backward wine went through malolactic fermentation in all new French oak, then was racked into another set of new French barriques for another two years.
