Expert Reviews

96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012

Bright, full ruby.  Pure, vibrant aromas of cassis, blackberry, blueberry, licorice, graphite and leather.  Like liquid velvet on entry, then energetic and sharply delineated in the mid-palate, with penetrating minerality intensifying the pristine dark berry flavors.  Most impressive today on the extremely long, perfumed finish, which shows suave, noble tannins and a magically light touch for such an intense wine.  This wine is remarkably tastable today but it's also built for 30+ years of aging.
