92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
Bright medium ruby. Cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice, violet and spicy oak on the nose. Densely packed and ripe but also nicely vibrant, with good lift and saline complexity to the black cherry, dark berry and licorice flavors. Finishes with big, ripe tannins and very good chocolatey persistence. Hints at slightly elevated alcohol but also boasts harmonious acidity and plenty of personality. An excellent vintage for this bottling.
