93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
Good deep red-ruby. Black cherry and licorice on the nose, along with some sexy oak tones that are less exotic than those shown by the 2005 offering. Then sweet, dense and suave, boasting more primary fruit than the earlier vintage. This possesses deep medicinal reserves to support an extending development in bottle but there's nothing tough about it. Finishes sweet, serious and long. I find this much creamier and sweeter than the 2005, with stronger and riper material to support its oak element. (Vin Divino, Chicago, IL)
