89(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2011
Good, full ruby-red. Crushed redcurrant, blueberry and graphite on the slightly inky but vibrant nose. Dry and broad, with a slight herbal character to the bright red berry and cherry flavors; boasts very good density and better balance than the 2006, if not quite that wine's weight or flesh. Finishes with a lingering note of graphite and substantial but fine-grained tannins that arrive late. A promising but still youthful wine, I'd cellar it for now and try again in a couple of years, when it will have developed more style and substance.
