94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
(98% syrah and 2% viognier): Opaque purple. Ripe, expansive aromas of boysenberry, cassis, vanilla and violet, complicated by olive and cracked pepper nuances and a hint of cola. Lush and densely packed, offering sweet, broad black and blue fruit flavors and sexy oak spice qualities. Dusty tannins add shape and grip to the very long, spice- and smoke-accented finish, which echoes the cassis and vanilla notes. Nothing shy about this big boy.
