96(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011

(from vines averaging 30 years of age):  Bright, deep red.  Ripe, minerally aromas of cherry liqueur, spun sugar, mocha, flowers and sweet oak.  Wonderfully fat, sweet, creamy and full, especially in the context of this vintage.  Saturates the palate with a wave of raspberry, mocha and truffle flavors.  Remarkably showy already but this should be a cellar treasure.  Finishes with extremely refined tannins and outstanding length.  A baby today, even if its high quality is easy to see.  Guido Fantino describes 2008 as "an unbelievable vintage, with a near-perfect vegetative cycle, and perfect day-night temperature differences."
