91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009

($48; blended with 8% cabernet sauvignon) Bright medium ruby. Perfumed, rocky aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice, tar and pepper.

Very closed today; give this plenty of aeration if you plan to pop a cork anytime soon. Possesses a firm spine for aging.
