94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
(from an uplifted river bed near the Phelps winery): Good ruby-red. Nuanced aromas of blackberry, minerals, licorice and wild herbs; a bit more medicinal in character than the 2008 version. Quite closed and inexpressive following the recent bottling, but concentrated dark fruit flavors show a lovely light touch, with mineral and floral notes providing lift. Finishes with serious, toothdusting tannins that will require aging.
