92(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012

Saturated dark ruby.  Exotic, port-like aromas of blackberry liqueur, mocha and grilled meat.  Fat, lush, saline and sweet, conveying an impression of extreme port-like ripeness.  Huge, mouth-saturating flavors of dark berries and chocolate.  Not heavy but doesn't exactly dance on the palate.  Does this need years to shed some of its baby fat or will it always be a bit monolithic?  Finishes with a boatload of ripe, broad tannins and palate-staining fruit.  In a distinctly extreme style, and yet this maintained its sweetness of fruit for days in the recorked bottle.  This is bound to be one of the most controversial wines of the vintage.  I look forward to checking back in on it in 10 or 15 years.
