91(+?)? Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012
(aged in 150% new oak: in new barrels for a year, after which 50% of the wine went into tank and the other 50% into another set of new barriques): Bright medium ruby. Blackberry, cassis, licorice, bitter chocolate and coconutty oak on the nose. Moderately sweet and suave, with a fine-grained, palate-saturating texture and excellent concentration to the dark berry flavors. Classically dry wine, finishing with substantial oak tannins that dominate today. I'd like to have seen this with a bit less new oak.
