91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September 2011
Bright, dark red-ruby. Complex, scented nose offers dark berries, smoke, flowers and spices, all lifted by a floral topnote; very syrah, but not in a gamey way. Then juicy and quite pure if a bit youthfully musclebound, with a subtle intensity to the blueberry and pepper flavors. Highly aromatic in the mouth but not a fleshy style. In fact, this is downright folded in on itself today. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins. Will this open with time in bottle and gain in flesh? Carrying a very moderate 13.6% alcohol. Winemaker: Mark Kent.
