Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2009

($65; 85% cabernet sauvignon, 12% syrah and 3% carmenere) Inky ruby. Alluring aromas of black raspberry, cassis, smoked meat and incense, with a suave floral quality adding complexity. Fleshy, sweet dark berry flavors are impressively concentrated and stain the palate. The lush fruit is framed by gentle tannins, which quickly fade away on the back end. Gains a refreshingly bitter licorice quality on the finish, which strongly repeats the sweet berry notes. Resist drinking this seductive wine too soon as it is built to reward patience. (Misa Imports, Dallas, TX)
