91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(aged in 70% French and 30% American oak, about 35% new):  Bright ruby-red.  Blackberry, redcurrant, licorice, violet and pepper on the nose, plus a whiff of game.  Creamy, concentrated and sweet, with a seamless texture to the high-toned blackberry and saline flavors.  Offers a thickness of texture and a well-judged sugar/acid balance.  Finishes quite long, with very suave tannins.
