91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011

Good medium ruby.  Black cherry, dark berries and licorice on the nose.  Sweet but firm, with excellent concentration and medicinal reserve to the dark berry flavors.  An elegant, ripe, smooth wine with a lovely mounting finish featuring suave tannins.  No rough edges or austerity here--in fact this is downright creamy in the mid-palate--but this has plenty of structure for a graceful evolution in bottle.
