92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
(15.9% alcohol): Glass-staining purple. Smoky, deeply pitched scents of candied black and blue fruits, cracked pepper and olive; smells a lot like a wine from the northern Rhone. Stains the palate with densely packed blueberry and bitter cherry flavors, with a spicy nuance adding lift. Finishes peppery and very long, with resonating florality and slow-mounting tannins. This wine was raised in 50% new French oak but I don't detect its influence.
