Expert Reviews

96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2010

Good deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of currant, tobacco, graphite, loam and smoke; hints at an almost roasted ripeness. Then densely packed, opulent and layered in the mouth, showing more fat and sweetness today than the 2006 but a slightly more granular and less refined texture. Plenty of tannins here but they hit the palate late, allowing the lush fruit to open out and build. This is easier to taste today than the 2006 but is still very young.
