92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
(includes 9% petit verdot; raised in 100% new oak): Inky purple. Assertively perfumed aromas of red- and blackcurrant, cola, vanilla, pipe tobacco and fresh flowers, with a subtle note of smoky herbs. Deeply pitched but energetic, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors complicated by floral pastille and mocha nuances. Juicy and focused cabernet with excellent finishing thrust, lingering spiciness and building tannins. This wine is still very young but offers excellent potential, as a bottle that had been open for two days proved to me.
