93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
Good deep red with ruby highlights. Wild, highly nuanced nose combines blackberry, licorice, minerals, flowers and herbs. Offers compelling sweetness but more structure and cut than the classico, showing a tight core of dark fruits and minerals and excellent focus. Less velvety and open-knit today but classy and long, with substantial ripe tannins reaching the front teeth. Not quite as chiseled or refined as the 2008 but there's more stuffing here.
