92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012

(aged in about 75% new oak; includes 7% malbec, 5% merlot, 5% petit verdot, 5% St. Macaire and 2% cabernet franc):  Good deep bright ruby.  Expressive but cool nose offers cassis, violet and mint.  Suave, concentrated and spicy, with licorice, mineral and oak flavors currently holding the upper hand over the wine's fruit flavors.  The first tannins show some youthful toughness and will require at least five years of patience.
