90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2006
($54) Dark ruby. Brooding, very ripe, lightly roasted dark berry and plum aromas tinged by espresso, bitter chocolate and wild herbs. Warm and toasty, with a strong oak spice accent to the roasted cherry and cassis flavors. With air, exotic oak spice and leather emerge, as well as solid, chunky tannins. Finishes ripe, deep and sweet, with strong berry liqueur and coffee flavors. Seriously ripe but also nicely balanced, the fruit just this side of roasted and compellingly sweet.
