88? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
($50; aged for one year in tonneaux, 50% new, followed by eight months in stainless steel) Bright medium ruby. Liqueur-like black cherry, nuts and a tarry nuance on the almost port-like nose; misses out on the freshness of the best barberas. Strong roasted fruit flavors show a lightly meaty quality and powerful framing acidity. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins and a slight dry edge. The fruit yield here was less than a kilo per vine.
