90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2010
($38; a blend of 60% syrah, 35% cabernet sauvignon and 5% petit verdot) Inky purple. Dark berry and cherry-cola aromas are complemented by licorice and a hint of bonfire. Juicy, ripe cassis and cherry flavors are firmed by dusty tannins, which gain power with air. There's plenty of rich fruit here. The finish is chewy and subtly smoky, leaving bitter cherry and dark berry notes behind. I prefer the vivacity of the 2008 right now, but this is pretty impressive.
