90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2011

($35) Good deep full ruby. Very expressive aromas of blueberry, violet, menthol, graphite and dark chocolate. In a rather extractive, hedonistic style, perhaps a tad roasted but offering sweet, sexy, high-toned flavors of cola, sassafras and violet. Finishes supple, sweet and long, with very fine-grained tannins.
