88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011
Inky ruby. Pungent, floral-accented aromas of blackberry and cherry compote, with a slow-building vanilla quality. Oak-spiced dark fruit flavors show a strong vanilla quality and supple texture, with some heat on the back end. The cherry note repeats on the firmly tannic, gripping finish.
