Expert Reviews

95(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2013

Bright ruby-red.  Superripe, soil-driven aromas of currant, plum, cherry pie, mocha and minerals; almost liqueur-like in its ripeness, in a 1947 way.  Then huge, sweet and plush, with great volume and depth to its flavors of cassis, flowers, minerals, game and olive.  Finishes with big, ripe, horizontal tannins and great mounting length.  This remarkably thick wine is actually a bit youthfully stunted today and should really be cellared for ten years.  It should go on for three or four decades in a cool cellar.
