93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
Dark red. Much less expressive on the nose than the 2006, hinting at game, tobacco and underbrush. Distinctly wilder in the mouth, showing less energy and primary fruit character than the 2006 but a compelling silky texture. There's a lovely sweetness to the tobacco, earth and underbrush flavors and rather suave if slightly drying tannins, but this wine is nonetheless tight and in need of patience.
