Expert Reviews

89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011

Bright red-ruby.  Aromas of mocha, nuts, leather and black olive, with dark berries in the background.  Juicy and spicy in the mouth, with modest fat but good energy and cut to its dark cherry, cassis and herbal flavors.  Boasts good intensity but finishes a bit tight, with substantial dusty tannins.
