Expert Reviews

88(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011

(93% cabernet sauvignon, 6% petit verdot and 1% cabernet franc):  Good bright red-ruby.  Musky aromas of black raspberry, redcurrant, tobacco, menthol and herbs.  Offers a light touch to its dark fruit and herbal flavors but comes across as tight today, and not yet showing much pliancy or sweetness.  In a cool, minty style but this clenched wine is still a baby.  (I tasted this bottle just before press time in New York; my earlier sample at Dominus was lower-toned and did not display as much lift.)
