96 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2008

($180) Inky ruby. A spine-tingling bouquet offers fresh raspberry, cherry, anise, Asian spices and fresh lavender, with a sexy undercurrent of minerals. Overwhelms the palate with sweet red and dark berry preserve flavors, gaining depth and ripeness with air. Supple, sappy and crammed with juicy fruit, this needs to be served by the dose, not the glass. But there's no heaviness about it. Wild, singular and supremely alluring stuff. There are 6,100 bottles of this.
