Expert Reviews

92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2010

($125; this bottling represents just four new Taransaud barrels) Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of blackberry and bitter chocolate complicated by graphite minerality. Wonderfully dense and sweet, with terrific depth and definition to the dark berry, chocolate and smoky oak flavors. Plenty of material in reserve here, promising a slow and positive evolution in bottle. The firm but ripe tannins are buried in fruit, but there's serious underlying structure here.
