89(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010
($36; includes 12% petite sirah) Opaque purple. Smoky, oak-spiced aromas of blackberry and musky herbs, with a building mocha note. Ripe, palate-coating red and dark berry compote flavors are complicated by notes of smoke and bitter chocolate, with a refreshing kick of acidity coming up late. Tannins build with air, which suggests that this could use a little time. The finish repeats the bitter chocolate and vanilla qualities and closes on a gently sweet note.
