94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
Good deep red. Pure, subdued aromas of medicinal dark cherry, licorice and menthol; smells distinctly cool. Then densely packed and imploded on the palate, with terrific fruit intensity accentuated by spice and stone notes. Sexy violet and lilac notes contribute to the impression of juiciness. Youthfully bound-up but every bit as vigorous as the 2007. Finishes very long and firm, with dusty tannins.
