90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2011

($43) Pale, hazy pinkish-red; this has obviously been macerated on its skins. Bright, delicate aromas of raspberry, pear, vanilla and spices. Enters full and supple, then shows slightly muted flavors of citrus and pear complicated by hints of red berries and caramel. Comes across as considerably fatter than some past bottlings but without heaviness or loss of shape, thanks to lively acidity. Finishes dense, nutty and long. This needs time to develop a bit more flesh and complexity. (Vias Imports, New York, NY)
