92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010
($50; 89-year-old vines) Deep, bright ruby. Youthfully brooding aromas of blackberry, blueberry, spicecake, licorice and black cardamom. Brighter red fruits join the darker ones on the palate, giving more verve to the wine. Velvety tannins add shape and a serious mien to the weighty fruit, which clings impressively on the long, sappy, impressively smooth finish. This is still a young beast but there's an unlikely suavity to it as well and its tannins are very well-managed.
