95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2008
($186) Opaque purple. Explosive bouquet displays blackberry, mulberry, creme de cassis, cherry-vanilla and Asian spices. A zesty cracked pepper quality adds urgency to the deep, sweet dark berry flavors and a kick to the back end. Mixes depth and energy with a deft hand, finishing with exotic notes of floral pastille and spicecake. The spicy quality lingers endlessly, giving this wine an improbably vivacious personality. There are just 200 bottles of this for the United States.
