92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009
($125) Good, bright ruby-red. Blueberry, bitter chocolate, licorice, minerals, tobacco leaf and sexy oak spices on the nose. Dense but supple and pliant, with quintessential varietal flavors of cassis, licorice, fresh herbs and minerals. Harmonious acidity contributes to the impression of inner-mouth lift and perfume. Very refined and silky wine, finishing with fine-grained tannins and rising length. Sweet in the style of the year but not overly so. Has the concentration and freshness to age nicely.
