95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011

Bright, dark red.  Knockout perfume of black cherry, black raspberry, minerals, violet, rose petal and a whiff of dark chocolate.  Silky on entry, then almost painfully intense in the middle, with terrific backbone and acidity to the classy fruit, mineral and dark chocolate flavors. This boasts fruit of steel, and great clarity.  Finishes with a compelling savory quality, a spine of noble tannins and outstanding subtle persistence.

Four and half stars at this point; will wait to drink the remaining bottles.
Very happy.
