89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
($46; done in barriques, 20% new) Moderately saturated medium red. Plum, mocha and nutty oak on the nose. Sweet, pliant and accessible, but with the inner-palate energy and lift of the better 2005s. An enticing raspberry flavor carries through to the finish, which shows rather gentle tannins and good persistence. This is mostly from younger vines, averaging about 20 years of age.
