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

Ruby-red.  Pungently fragrant aromas of blackcurrant and cedar complicated by quinine and bay leaf.  Rich, dense and suave, with rather brooding flavors of blackberry, plum liqueur, aromatic herbs and forest floor.  This has shut down since the Primeurs and will need patience.  Lacks only the generosity of the grand vin but should be outstanding.  And it's a remarkable second wine.  (ID)
